GOV. JOHN FAIRFIELD. 



HARRY FAIRFIELD HAMILTON, d. m. d. 




OHN FAIRFIELD was born in Saco, Me., Jan. 30, 1797, 
receiving his education in the common schools of the 
town and in Limerick Academy. He then engaged in 
trade for a short time, and in that connection made several trips to 
the South, but finally deciding to study law, he entered the office 
of Judge Shepley in Saco, for that purpose, and was admitted to 
the bar in 1826, when he formed a partnership with George 
Thatcher, a son of Judge Thatcher of Biddeford, which continued 
many years. Pleadings and court practice were his special depart- 
ment, while Mr. Thatcher looked more particularly after the busi- 
ness of the office. 

In 1832 he was appointed reporter of decisions of the Supreme 
Court, which office he held until his election as Representative to 
Congress in 1835. He was re-elected in 1837, but resigned his 
seat on being elected Governor of Maine in 1838, to which office 
he was re-elected in 1839, 1841 and 1842. During his last term in 
this office, Ruel Williams having resigned his seat in the Senate of 
36 



2 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

the United States, Mr. Fairfield was elected for the remainder of 
the term, and was re-elected in 1845. 

Shortly after his return to Washington in the early winter of 
1847, he submitted to what he considered would be a slight surgi- 
cal operation, which however terminated fatally. He had suffered 
with a chronic trouble of the knee joints, which he feared would 
become permanently stiff, and had consulted eminent surgeons 
without benefit; but one Dr. Magruder, of Washington, was so 
sanguine of a complete cure that he allowed him on the morning 
of Dec. 24, 1847, to make an incision into each knee joint and 
inject a solution of sulphate of copper into the capsule. This 
solution was kept in the joint too long, and was absorbed into the 
circulation, causing intense agony, a gradual paralysis, and death at 
8 o'clock in the evening of the same day. 

In the space of twelve years he had been twice chosen Represen- 
tative to Congress, four times elected Governor, and twice a U. S. 
Senator. His was a brilliant record of advancement seldom 
equaled in this country, and each step was accompanied by the 
greatest enthusiasm and personal popularity. 

He was a plain straightforward man, of simple manners and 
habits of life, of strong convictions of duty and great fearlessness 
of purpose. He had a quick apprehension of right, and an in- 
stinctive abhorence of dalliance with the wrong, feeling always his 
responsibility as a Christian for the words he spoke or the votes he 
cast. The possession of these qualities, with a clear logical mind, 
served to make him a valuable and much-sought counselor, and 
what so marked him in all his public career, a man ready for 
emergencies and the demands of the hour. 

It was during the Congressional term of Mr. Fairfield, that the 
Cilley-Graves duel occurred, and in the investigation which 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 3 

followed he won for himself a national reputation. The wiping 
out an insult by recourse to firearms was a common practice among 
the Southern people, and the extreme reluctance of Northern men 
to be drawn into such contests was attributed to cowardice. The 
shooting of Cilley in this duel for a trivial offence, so wrought on 
the noble mind of Mr. Fairfield that he, filled with the indignation 
common to the whole country at what seemed a deliberate murder, 
brought forward in the House a resolution asking the appointment 
of a committee to investigate the circumstances of the duel and 
report accordingly. 

This motion was followed by an exciting debate, in which Mr. 
W. C. Johnson, of Kentucky, said: 

"It is an evil in the state of society which makes it necessary in some cases for 
gentlemen to resort to this mode of settling personal disputes. I look upon 
the resolution as reflecting upon the wisdom and justice of the parties engaged 
in it. I would tell the gentlemen that it would be an unpleasant duty to serve 
on a committee of this kind and that it would require more than ordinary nerve to 
serve on it and I would not do so unless I should prepare myself at once for 
similar encounters." 

To this and other remarks in the same strain, Mr. Fairfield 
replied ; 

"But it is said by Mr. Garland that these things cannot be prosecuted without 
serious consequences, and Mr. Johnson has said that if he were placed on such a 
committee he should feel the necessity of going thoroughly armed. Sir, I am no 
duellist. I have adopted principles that forbid revengeful feelings, much less the 
taking of a fellow creature's life. But Sir, I will not be deterred from doing what 
I deem to be my duty by any threats which may be thrown out from any quarter; 
and has it come to this, that a member of this House is to be called to account out 
of it for words spoken in debate, and shot down ; and when an inquiry into the 
circumstances is proposed, we are told to take care, that such an inquiry cannot be 
made without exposing ourselves to personal danger ? — the course now proposed I 



4 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

hope will be followed by such measures as will effectually secure the members 
of this House in freedom of debate and security of person." 

The committee was appointed and carried its report to considera- 
ble length, recommending the expulsion of Graves, and the censur- 
ing of the seconds. 

In a letter from Governor Judah Dana, this matter is referred to: 

"In the case of the lamented Cilley I was not in Washington, but daily feared 
your assassination as it was said no other man dared to bring the matter before 
Congress; no one else had the temerity^ and to your sense of duty, firmness, and 
activity at that critical moment, are we indebted for a stop to that murderous 
practice in Congress." 

It was while Gov. Fairfield was in the executive chair that the 
Aroostook war came upon us, and this was the only part of the 
north-eastern boundary question reflecting credit on Maine or the 
United States. The people of Maine were thoroughly aroused. 
The Legislature appropriated large amounts of money to carry out 
the military operations in protecting the disputed territory against 
the trespassers, and Gov. Fairfield was foremost in vindicating the 
rights of the State. Had he been less firm and active, the British, 
believing as they did at that time, that the Yankees would not 
fight, would probably not have withdrawn their troops as readily 
from the territory they claimed. 

Tame as was the result, and unfair as it was to Maine, still it 
showed the Executive and people to be vigilant and earnest, and 
gave Gov. Fairfield a stronger hold than ever on the affections of 
the people, which probably would have been manifested in more 
honors but for his early death. 

His social gifts, combined with strict integrity and a sound judg- 
ment, made him warm friends among his political enemies. 

A charming adaptation of himself to young people, made him a 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 5 

favorite with them, and wherever he was known, they could be 
counted his loyal friends. 

His genial disposition and ready wit endeared him to all classes, 
and many are the pleasant anecdotes still related of him. 

He was pre-eminently a domestic man, ardently attached to wife, 
children and home. In an epitaph on a favorite dog, he wrote, — • 

" I'll never be ashamed to love 
What's been a part of home." 

John Fairfield married Sept. 25, 1825, Anna Paine, daughter of 
Dr. Thomas G. Thornton, of Saco, who was U. S. Marshal during 
the war of 181 2-14. Nine children were born to them, most of 
whom are now living. 

He died in Washington in the meridian of life, as before stated, 
Dec. 24, 1847. His remains were taken to his home and deposited 
in Laurel Hill Cemetery on the North bank of the beautiful Saco, 
where a plain granite shaft marks their resting place. 

Mrs. Fairfield was an excellent wife and mother, and a woman 
possessed of rare mental power and good judgment, manifested in 
the rearing of her young family to maturity and honorable 
positions in life. 

She died July 18, 1882, at an advanced age. 

Gov. Fairfield was descended from —

CONCERNING THE SETTLEMENT OF FALMOUTH 
IN CASCO BAY, 1717-18. 



CONTRIBUTED BY MRS. M. J. MOORE. 




T a Great and General Court or Assembly of his Majesty's 
Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England held 
Octo 29, 1 718. 

The Report of John Wheelwright Esq^ &C. appointed by an 
Order of this Court pass'd at the Sessions begun and held the 28^^. 
of May last to be a Com.*^^ for regulating the Settlement of Fal- 
mouth in Casco Bay is as follows, viz. — 

Pursuant to a vote of the great and general Assembly of his 
Majestys Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England held 
at Boston May 1715 impowering and appointing the Subscriber to 
be a Committee to prosecute the Regular Settlement of the East- 
ern Frontiers and in Answer to the Petition of the Proprietors and 
Settlers of the Town of Falmouth in Casco Bay in the year 171 7 
and 1 718, who have made Application to us the said Committee 
according to the Direction of the General Court We have upon 
the Sixteenth day of this present Month of Ju taken a View of 
the said Town of Falmouth, and upon Mature Deliberation and 
Consideration, We offer our Report to this Honorable Court as 
follows viz^ — The dividing Bounds between Scarborough and Fal- 
mouth We find to be the Line from the first dividing Branches of 
Spurwink River, from thence to run into the Country Eight Miles 
Northwest, and from the said Branches as the River runs into the 
Sea, and the Easterly Bounds of Falmouth to extend to certain 
Islands known by the Name of the Capboard Islands, from a Red 
Oak Tree upon the Main over against said Islands marked F on

the South Side, and so South East over a White Rock into the 
Sea, and from said Tree Eight Miles into the Country and accord- 
ing to the best of our Judgments We have determined the Spot 
whereon the ancient Town of Falmouth stood and a Fort was 
formerly built by Order of the Government and where there are 
already Settled above Twenty Families in a Compact defensible 
Manner to be a very agreeable Place for the Settlement of a Town 
being bordering upon a fine Navigable River guarded by the Sea 
by adjacent Islands most commodious for the Fishery and is 
accommodated with Several large Streams for Mills as well as a 
large Quantity of good Land for the Encouragement of Husbandry, 
and We are of Opinion there is fair Prospect of its being in a little 
Time a flourishing Town, and in Order to the enabling them to a 
Methodical Proceeding in their Affairs We are of Opinion that it 
is absolutely necessary that they be invested with Power to act as 
a Town as soon as may be with Conveniency. We have also left 
our Advice with them with Respect to laying out their Streets and 
high Ways, as also for the placing their Meeting House after the 
most commodious Manner for the Benefit of the Town in general 
Signed, John Wheelright, Abraham Preble, John Leighton, Lewis 
Bane, Joseph Hill. 

In the House of Representatives Nov'^. ii, 1718 Read and 
Ordered that the Report on the Other Side be accepted, and that 
the Bounds of the Town of Falmouth be continued confirmed and 
ratified as in the said Report is set forth, and that the Inhabitants 
of the said Town that now are and hereafter shall be from Time to 
Time invested with the Same Powers and Authorities to act man- 
age direct and Order the Affairs of the said Township as other 
Towns are Provided that this Order shall in no Measure Prejudice

JOHN BRAY OF KITTERY. NO. IL 



BY JOSIAII H. URUMMOND. 




N the index to volume six of the York County Records, 
the will of Joanna (or Joan) Bray is named. Upon refer- 
ring to the part of the volume designated by the index, 
it is found that a number of leaves are missing, not having been 
bound in with the rest; so far, the missing leaves have not been 
found, and it is quite probable that they were accidently left out by 
the binder and are irrecoverably lost. 

Undoubtedly this lost will would throw much light upon the 
history of the Bray family; but taking the wills of John Bray and 
Joan Deering (Recorder Vol. IH. p. 248, etc.), a reliable conclusion 
can be reached. 



26 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

I believe that it is now conceded that John Bray had only one 
wife, and that she and their four children, John, Joan, Margery 
and Mary survived him. His will was dated January 22, 1689 (N. 
S.) Joan (the daughter) was then the wife of Clement Deering, 
and Margery, the wife of William Pepperell; Mary was then un- 
married, but soon became the wife of Joseph Deering, brother of 
Clement. 

No record of the marriage of John, jr., has been discovered. 
Upon the strength of the agreement between the sons-in-law of 
John Pearce (Recorder Vol. Ill, p. 255), I formerly concluded that 
John, jr., married the daughter of John Pearce, but since the publi- 
cation of that agreement Dr. Banks has suggested that the party 
to it was John Bracy and not John Bray, and I am satisfied that he 
is correct. Dr. Banks says that among his ancestors was John 
Bracy, and in his family pedigree is a statement that John Bracy 
or John Bracey of York married a daughter of John Pearce. The 
agreement provides for an equal division of the real estate of John 
Pearce, "late of York," an indication that the parties all lived there. 
In the record of the agreement, the name is spelled Braey, and it is 
so written in the record that I, at first, read it "Bracy"; in no other 
place do I find the name "Bray," spelled "Braey"; on the whole I 
am satisfied that the party was Bracy; at any rate, the evidence fails 
to show that the party was John Bray, son of John of Kittery. 

The evidence is almost irresistible that John Bray, jr., died soon 
after his father and before his mother, without issue. His father 
died in 16S9; the will of his sister Joan Deering, is dated June 20, 
1707, and was admitted to probate before January 10, 1708 
(Recorder, Vol. Ill, pp. 251, 253). Her will speaks of her mother 
as then dead, and does not mention John. A careful comparison 
of the two wills shows that Joan Deering had become the owner 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 27 

of land bequeathed by her father to her mother and brother John, 
in joint tenancy, and which she "was posest of after my mother 
her decease" and "after my father and mothers decease." She evi- 
dently obtained it under her mother's will, and as her mother 
originally held it in joint tenancy with John, and under the law at 
that time, the whole land so held went to the survivor, the mother 
got the full title by the death of her son while she was living. 
Again John Bray made his widow and his son John executors of 
his will, but on December 8, 1701, William Pepperell, Esq., and 
Margery his wife, and Joseph Deering, and Mary his wife, and Joan 
Deering, relict of Clement Deering, late of Kittery deceased, and 
administrators to the estate of Mr. John Bray, late of Kittery 
deceased, by their deed of that date conveyed land at Spruce Creek, 
in Kittery. The John Bray mentioned in this deed was not the 
father as his property was disposed of by will, and as the property 
conveyed was land bequeathed to John, jr., by his father, it is certain 
that the John Bray mentioned in this deed was the son, who, at 
that date (1701) had deceased. 

As John Bray had a house in Plymouth, England, it may be that 
his will and those of his widow and daughter were recorded there 
in order to show the title to the house. However this may be, I 
apprehend that those who would know the maiden name of the 
wife of John Bray, must consult the Plymouth records, as the age 
of his children indicate that he was married in England. 

While if I am correct, John Bray of Kittery has no descendants 
bearing his name, those bearing other names are very numerous ; 
the Pepperells, the Deerings and the Jordans trace their descent to 
him. 

I wish, however to put one branch on record, especially as it has 
been given erroneously as well as imperfectly. 



28 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Joan Bray married Clement Deering (and not Dominicus Jordan). 
The}^ had three children: 

1. John Deering, b. June 17, 1680. 

2. Joanna Deering, b. May 9, 1687. 

3. Miriam Deering, b. Apr. 22, 1692. 

Joanna married Dominicus Jordan and their oldest child was 
Mary Jordan. The " Jordan Memorial " gives an account of the 
other children. 

Mary married Jacob Parker, of Boston, 1732, Their children 
were: 

1. Mary, m. Loring Gushing. 

2. Sarah, b. Mar. 4, 1734; m. David Strout. 

3. Dominicus Jordan, m. Mary Rogers. 

4. Jacob, m. Isabella McCobb. 

The order of their births is not certain, but there is scarcely any 
doubt that Mary was the oldest and Sarah next. 

The sons settled in Georgetown (now Phipsburg), and had large 
families — each a score of daughters, I think— of which I hope to 
give hereafter some account. 

Mary Parker married for her second husband. Col. Ezekiel 
Cushing, as stated in Jordan Memorial (p. 144).

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, MAINE. 

GRANT, SURVEY AND SETTLEMENT 

OF THE TOWNSHIP. 



REV. G. M. BODGE, EAST BOSTON, MASS. 



" At a Great and General Court or Assembly for his Majesties 
Province of the Massachusetts Bay in New England held by 
adjournment on Thurs-day the 20*^ of November 1734 

A petition of Abraham Howard and Joseph Blaney Esqu^^ Rep- 
resentatives of the Town of Marblehead, showing that the s^ Town 
is of very small extent, and the inhabitants more numerous than In 
most Towns of the Province so that they are much straitened In 
their accommodations and therefore praying for a Tract of Land 
for a Township for such persons belonging to said Town of 
Marblehead as will settle thereon." 

In the House of Representatives READ and VOTED That 
there be and hereby is Granted a Tract of Land of the Contents 
of six miles square Lying Eastward and adjoining to the Township 
lately laid out to the Narragansett Grantees on the Back of Fal- 
mouth in the County of York. And that John Wainwright Esqr., 
John Hobson and Daniel Epes Esqr., with such as the Hon^^^* 
Board shall appoint, be a committee fully authorized to admit sixty 
inhabitants belonging to the Town of Marblehead that are most 
likely to settle and bring forward a new plantation, and that most 
need a grant of Land. 

And the Committee to lay out the said Township as also the 
first Division of Home Lotts In as defensible a manner as con- 
veniently may be, The number of Lots to be sixty-three, and to 
draw future divisions in equal proportions. Three of the aforesaid 



36 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Lotts or Rights to be disposed of, One to the first settled Minister, 
one to the Ministry, and the other to the use of the school. This 
to be confirmed upon the Grantees fulfilling the following condi- 
tions. And for that Purpose that the committee shall have the 
sum of twenty-five pounds each for the performance, on condition 
that they be upon the spot and have an house built eighteen feet 
square and seven feet stud at the least, and also to have seven 
acres of Land brought to English Grass and fitted for mowing. That 
they settle a Learned Orthodox Minister and build a convenient 
Meeting-House for the publick worship of God within ^m^ years of 
their admission and that each Grantee pay the said Committee five 
pounds upon their admission, which shall be used for defraying the 
charge of the survey, the Remainder to be improved for the 
publick Benefit of the Plantation and upon failure of the Perform- 
ances, The Right of such as fail to revert to the Province as if no 
such Grant had been Made. 

"In Council Read and Concurred and 
William Dudley 



Esqu^ 
Ebenezer Burrill J 

are joyned in the Affair. 

Consented to 

J. Belcher. 

Examined P'' Thaddeus Mason, Dept. Secty." 

The above is copied .from the Proprietor's Record-Book. At the Massachusetts 
State House the Court Records show that the petition was passed in the House of 
Representatives Dec. 14, 1734, and in the Council on the 17th. 

Pursuant to the above vote the Committee appointed by the General Court 
came to Marblehead and admitted sixty Grantees. The names of these are given 
in full, but as they are the same as in the list of the first division of home lots, I 
do not give them here. On the part of the grantees the following action was 
taken : 



Maine Historical and Genealop'ical Recorder. 37 

"At a meeting of several of the Grantees, 

Ebenezer Hawkes, Mr Thomas Chute and William Goodwin were 
appointed to accompany the Great and General (Courts) Commit- 
tee to assist and advise in locating and laying out s^ Tract of Land 
with First Division of Home-Lots. Accordingly on April y^ 19 
1735 they assembled at Marblehead (with Mr Rowland Houghton 
as surveyor employed by the Court's committee), who accompanied 
them and Returned on the 17^^ of May 1735." • 

Then follows the report of the survey. 

"province of the MASSACHUSETTS BAY. 

At the desire of the Commissioners of the Great and General 
Court Appointed in December last to Lay out the contents of a 
Township six miles square with the first Division or Home Lotts 
therein, on the Back of the Town of Falmouth in Casco-Bay, In 
answer to the Petition of Abraham Howard and Joseph Blaney 
Esqrs., in Behalf of Sundry inhabitants of Marblehead, I have 
repaired with the said Committee accompanied by a Committee of 
the Grantees to the new Granted Towmship And have laid out & 
Plotted the same with the Home-Lotts having two chainmen to 
assist me namely Cap^^ Dominions Jordan & Mr Samuel Proctor, 
And in the proceeding therein I acted faithfully and according to 
my best skill. 

We began at a Place called Sacaripy-Falls in the Presumpscot 
River and so as the River runs to a Great Pond called Great 
Sebago Pond — Thence North 45 East 4 miles 120 rods. 
Thence South 45 East to W^ Yarmouth Back Line. Thence 
3 miles south 45 west to the corner of North Yarmouth & Fal- 
mouth Bounds south 24. 20 minutes west 8 miles & 60 Rods to 
Sacaripy Falls. The Plan was taken upon a scale of 200 rods to 



38 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

the inch, and contains Twenty-five-thousand six-hundred acres 
Ponds and Rivers included. And we judged according to our best 
observation there was no more than the contents of six miles 
square of land in the Township Exclusive of water, which is 
humbly submitted. 

By y^ Excellency Hon^^ most Ob^* ServS 

Rowland Houghton. 
May ye 15th, 1735 
A true copy. Examined p"" Thaddeus Mason, Dep. Secty." 

The above report was approved by the General Court June 17th, 1735, and the 
township was confirmed to the grantees and their heirs. Upon this act of the 
Court all the titles held in the town today rest. 

The next step was the drawing of home-lots, concerning which the following 
document explains itself : 

"June y^ 27*^ i735- 

The Committee of the Great and General Court met at Marble- 
head, at which time the Several Home lots or first Divisions were 
Disposed of & Drawn, which were as followeth 

Number i. The First Lot or Number One was disposed of for 
the use of the school. Bounded at the North-westermost end of s^ 
Division or Home-Lots at a Large Pine tree marked E. B. i, and 
on the North Eastward on a Road or Highway, s^ Highway being 
about half a mile from Presumscot River, and on said Road or 
Highway to measure in Breadth from s^ Pine tree South Eastward 
Ten rods, And from s^ Road or Highway & Return on Right 
angles and paralel lines home to Presumpscot River be it more or 
less." 

The remainder of the lots were bounded in manner as above, each laid out ten 
rods wide with sides parallel with last, and ends bounded east by the main road

and west by the river. The details are here omitted, and for convenience and 
economy of space several lists are condensed in one, and the numbers subsequently 
drawn in the several divisions are placed opposite the names as they stand in the 
first list of grantees. This table is also a true copy of that found upon the old 
plan of the town, made by Mr. Chase Stevens, except that I have added the titles 
and occupations given in another list.

The residence of all in the above list was Marblehead, except Benjamin Dodge 
of Beverly, Nathaniel Cogswell of Haverhill, and James Pearson of Newbury. 
Galley Wright is called "a minor, Grandson of Moses Galley of Marblehead 
deceased." It is from this grantee that "Galley Wright's Brook" (running through 
Lot No. 2) takes its names. 

EXTRACTS FROM THE PROPRIETOR'S RECORDS. 

"By an act of the General Court June 19^'^ 1735 the Grantees are impowered 
as a corporate body to choose officers, hold meetings and transact the business of 
their township, and by virtue of this act the " Proprietors," as they are styled 
henceforward, held their first regular meeting at Marblehead June 27, 1735. They 
chose Abraham Howard Moderator of the meeting, and William Goodwin Pro- 
prietor's Clerk, Joseph Blaney, Esq., Treasurer, and a permanent committee of five 
to conduct the business of the settlement. At the adjournment of this meeting 
July 4th, it was voted to correct the error of the surveyor, who had laid out the 
main road so that the lower home-lots were found to be one third longer than 
Number one. The road was laid out anew as nearly as possible parallel with the 
general course of the river. It was also voted at this meeting to lay out an addi- 
tional ten acre lot to each home lot, being of like dimensions and lying directly 
opposite, on the East side of the main road, so that now the home-lot of each pro- 
prietor was ten rods wide and one mile long. The object of this compact manner 
of settlement was for the convenience and protection it would afford the first 
settlers. Besides the main-road, three cross-roads had been laid out from this to 
the river; The first between Home-lots 12 and 13, the second between 32 and t,t, 
and the third between 52 and 53. The first and last were changed in the year 
1 76 1, to suit the convenience of the settlers, who in many cases had now acquired 
several adjacent lots." Thus Capt. Thos. Chute now owned Nos. 12, 13 and 14, 
his original lot being No. 12. John Manchester owned Nos. 14 and 15, and at 
their petition the road was changed. In like manner the road between 52 and 53 
was changed to suit the convenience of Wm. Bolton and Hugh Grague. At the 



I 



\ 



42 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

same meeting it was voted to clear the main and cross roads "that the bounds of 
each lot may be easier found and improved." 

Very little of importance concerning the earliest settlement is known to us 
except what may be gleaned from the Proprietor's Records, and fragmentary 
references in court files and casual bills. The proprietors held meetings, elected 
officers and passed votes at Marblehead, and the only actual attempt at occupancy 
was the survey, by the bills for which we find that Ebenezer Hawkes, Thomas 
Chute and William Goodwin came as appointed, were present at the survey, and 
were doubtless the first of the proprietors that ever visited the new township. As 
early as Dec. it, 1735, they were moving the General Court for the adjustment of 
Falmouth line, and it seems that they felt quite secure in the matter, as they voted 
on the same day to build a bridge over the Presumpscot at the charge of the pro- 
prietors ' in the most convenient place above Sacaripy falls " as soon as the season 
of the year will permit. 

In regard to the above bridge we find in the records that the work was done and 
the accounts were received and adjusted at the meeting of November 20th, 1736. 
The cost of building the bridge and clearing the road to the home-lots was 
^293. 18. 9, and it was also voted to allow John Giles and Nathan Millet ^10 each 
for their labors, and "in Recompence for the casualty that befell them in said 
service." 

The work of clearing and building roads seems to have required a great expense 
of time and money. At the meeting in March, 1737, it was voted to build bridges 
over the " brooks or runs " sufficient to make the road from the bridge over the 
river to the farthest home-lot passable for carts. 

At the meeting June 9th, 1737, it was voted to build a meeting-house as soon as 
possible. At the adjourned meeting, June 23d, the report of the executive com- 
mittee as to dimensions, etc., of meeting-house, was received and accepted. The 
building was to be forty by thirty feet and ten feet stud, and to be built on the 
westernmost corner of the ten-acre lot to be laid out to the ministerial lot. This 
was No. 33, east side of main road, and a space of ten rods square was to be 
cleared about it to prevent its destruction by fire in the woods. The estimated 
cost was ;^ioo. A contract was made with Nathl. Cogswell to build the house, as 
will appear hereafter. 

At this same meeting, June 23d, 1737, it was voted that Mr. Thomas Chute be 
desired to inquire after any persons that may have or shall hereafter cut off any 
timber from the lands, and report the same to the proprietors. Mr. Chute had now 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 43 

removed from Marblehead to Falmouth, and some indications appear later on, as 
well as this appointment, to show that he was frequently upon the grant, and that 
during this year made some attempts at clearing his home-lot. 

The need of a saw mill in the township had been foreseen by the proprietors, 
and the proposal to build and carry on such mill, made by Rev*^. George Pigot, 
August, 1735, had been accepted by them, but as he failed to fulfill the conditions 
of his contract, it was annulled, Jan. 12, 1738, and at the meeting Jan. 19th a new 
contract was made with Ebenezer Hawkes, William Goodwin, Isaac Turner and 
Ebenezer Stacey, and a grant made to them of any one of the falls upon the river 
above the "Great Bridge," Four acres adjacent to the mill were to lie in common 
for public use as a landing place, &c., ten acres next to this and laid out on the 
" Northeasternmost side of the four acres of common land" were granted to the 
contractors. The conditions of the grant were that the mill should be begun on or 
before the first day of the next August, and be complete and fit to saw Timber, 
Boards, &c., before the last of November. The remaining parts of the water- 
power were to be improved with other mills before the end of five years, failing 
which the unimproved portions would revert to the proprietors. 

Thus it will be seen that whatever could be done by votes, " well-laid-plans," and 
generous appropriations, was being done by the proprietors to forward the settle- 
ment. But the grant was remote and difBcult of access, and for all that the old 
town of Marblehead was so " straitened " for room, actual settlers for the new 
township were slow to present themselves; and at the meeting March i6th, 1738, a 
new obstacle presents itself, in a letter received from Mr. Chute, informing the 
proprietors that the Indians have forbidden the proceeding of the workmen in 
building the meeting-house, " which hath not only put a stop to said building, but 
causes Discouragement to those designing to settle on their several lots this 
Spring." On April 3, 1738, they chose Messrs. Joseph Blaney, William Goodwin 
and Capt. Robert Parramore as a committee to apply to the Governor and Council 
for advice and direction in treating with the Indians, so as to bring the matter in 
dispute between them and the proprietors to a speedy issue or settlement. Nothing 
further appears in relation to the matter in the Records, but after a long search I 
found in the Massachusetts Archives the following report of an " Indian Confer- 
ence," which I think has never before been discovered, certainly not published. 
There is a fragment of the rough draft which the clerks made as the conversation 
went on, and then wrote out a revised account of what was important. This 
revision is the paper copied below. From the rough draft a few additional facts 



44 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

appear. The meeting is entitled "Conference with Polin and Indians of 
Pesumpscot," showing that some of his men were with him. Pohn addresses the 
'' Governor and Council," showing that the meeting was at Boston, He states that 
it is by the kindness of his friend Capt. Jordan (Dominicus, doubtless, who was a 
person of influence with the Indians and an experienced interpreter), that he is 
now able to come before the Governor with his grievance. In the Journal of the 
House of Representatives record is made of this meeting held with the Indians. 

CONFERENCE BETWEEN HIS EXCELLENCY Y^" GOV'' & POLIN SACHEM OF 

PESUMSCOTS. . • 

Gov"^ — How do you do, I am glad to see you. 

Indian — We have had a mind to wait on yo^ Excellency a great 
while & now are come to do it and Salute you. 

You'' Excellency when y^ Treaty was discharged was pleased to 
say y^ if anything should happen y^ we could not understand or did 
not approve of wee should inform y^ Excellency of it; and what 
we are most agrieved at is that the River Pesumscot is damed up 
so that y^ passage of y^ Fish w^^ is our food, is obstructed & y^ 
Col. Westbrook did promise ab* tv/o years ago y^ he' would leave 
open a place in y^ Dam and y^ hsh should have a free passage up 
the s^ River into y^ Pond in y^ proper Season but he has not per- 
formed, and y^ we are thereby deprived of our proper food. 

It was agreed y^ y^ Bounds of y^ Settlement made by y^ English 
should be known & y^ the English are encroaching upon our Lands 
which we never knew or understood was Lawfully purchased and 
we move y^ y^ English may not be allowed to settle any further as 
yet and y^ y® Government would put a stop to y® settlement on 
those Lands at present, and y^ y^ English Improvements caused y^ 
Hunting to be very difficult so y^ we cannot get our trade as usual, 
and we should be glad to have a trade on Pesumscot River. 

Gov" — How many families have you at Presumpscot .^^ 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 45 

Indian — About 25 men besides women and children. 

Gozf — Where do you Trade, at what Truck-house? 

Ind"- — Not any Particular Truck-House. 

Gov^ — If you trade at Capt. Smith's Truck-house it will be near 
& you will have goods cheaper than you can buy of private traders. 

Ind"" — We are not so much concerned about that for we go 
down y^ River where suits us best but our Main end is y^ Hunting 
& Fishing. There is an Island y^ we were at when y'^ Excellency 
was there y^ is a Watering Place which we should be glad to have 
y^ Improvement of for that End. 

Gor'' — That Island is owned by Mr. Willard. 

Ind"" — There are a great many Settlers at Pesumpscot and we 
should be glad of some Trader to be placed there y^ we might buy 
a small quantity of Rum, but not so much as to get Drunk for y* 
is Contrary to our Religion, Our young men desire y* we have a 
Dance sometimes and have no Drum, should be glad of one. 
These are the Things we come to wait on y°^ Excellency about and 
shall be glad of an answer. 

Gov^ — You shall have an answer to all before you go, The Gov'^ 
Drinks the King's health &c. The Indians Return y^ Salute & 
Withdraw. 

N, B, — The Indian laid down a skin at the close of each subject 
& said it was a pledge from his tribe. 

"The Indians object ag^* y^ Settlement of Marblehead Town- 
ship on Pesumpscot & y^ Other Settlements thereabout & they 
don't allow y^ English to have any Right to y^ Lands above 
Saukarappa on Pesumpscot River w^^ is about seven miles above 
Pesumpscot mills, where there is a mill set up by y^ proprietors of 
Marblehead Township." 

" Conference with Polin & Indians of Pesumpscot" 
"Aug. loth, 1739." 



46 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

gov''''' answer to the INDIANS. 

" As to complaint of the Obstruction given to the Fish in the 
Pesumpscot River, a letter will be sent by you to Coll° Westbrooke 
that the passage in the Dam be opened & kept open in the Proper 
season for the Fish to go up the River. 

As to Indian Title to the Lands on Pesumpscut River we are 
well informed that there have been Deeds given by the Indians of 
the Lands in that part of the County to Old Mr Jordan & Others 
but we suppose many of those papers have been burnt in the Time 
of war; However as none of that county are now in Town we 
cannot come to the knowledge of this matter but we shall make 
further inquiry into the affair & they shall be informed of it. 

As to Request for an Interpreter on Pesumpscot and Liberty for 
private persons to sell Rum there, The Governor has provided 
Interpreters at all the Truckhouses wh. is thought sufificient, and 
there the Indians are supplied with Rum in moderate quantities, 
and that for preventing any wrong-being done to the Indians the 
Government made a Law against private persons trading with them 
in Rum, and the good and wholesome Laws of the Province 
must not be broken. 

Aug. 13, 1739. 

letter to col*^ westbrook, sent by the indians. 

Sir. I am directed by His Excellency & the Council to acquaint 
you that divers Indians inhabiting Pesumpscot River have com- 
plained that by the Dams built on that River the course of the 
Fish is stoped & they are thereby deprived of a great part of their 
subsistence, that upon your first building the Dams a passage was 
made there for the Fish and kept open in the proper season but of 
late that passage has been wholly stoped up. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 47 

I am further to acquaint you that the Gov^ & Council apprehend 
it but reasonable to leave open a sufficient passage for the fish and 
this they expect may be done that so no further complaint may be 
made in this matter and the rather because that the deed of Presi- 
dent Danforth to the Town of Falmouth does make an express 
saving of the Rivers. It is also desired that you would take care 
and give orders that the people of Pesumpscot River treat the 
Indians kindly that come thither. 

Copy. J. WiLLARD. 

(Massachusetts Archives, vol. 29, pp. 355-359.) 

The above paper has several points of value as hitherto unknown. The name 
of the river is here pronounced, directly from the lips of the Indian, Pesumscot^ 
showing the common name to be erroneous, as students of the Indian languages 
long since decided. The English, sailing along the coast, at the first, learned of 
the Indians the names of the places at the mouths of the rivers, and applied these 
to the rivers. In this case the name analyzed is probably Pes-ompsk-ut, meaning, 
very nearly, " Falls-at-stan ding-rocks," which applies very well to the falls where 
Col. Westbrook erected his mills. The tribe is here called by the same name, and 
is here for the first and only time officially mentioned by name, as well as the chief, 
Polin, whom the settlers called ^^ Poland.''^ The "Truck-House " was at Saco, and 
its managing officer, Capt. Thomas Smith, was the father of " Parson Thomas 
Smith," the first minister of the first church in Falmouth (now Portland). The 
saw mill complained of by the Indians was not " set up " at " Saukarappa," as may 
appear, but according to the proprietor's record "above the proprietor's Great 
Bridge at the falls called by the Indians Nazuamqueeg.^'' (This name is probably 
the same as " Nequamkeag," a place on the Kennebec.) The place has since been 
known as Horse-beef-falls, of which and the mills built there an account is to be 
given in the proper order.

Sir, Whereas the soldiers taken and detained by the French 
after the capitulation for the surrender of Fort William Henry on 
the 9^^ of August ultimo will be demanded of the French, I want 
therefore to know the names of such included in the capitulation 
as are now missing, you will forthwith make the strictest enquiry 
after those of your Regiment included in the capitulation that are 
returned and send me a list of their names as soon as possible by 
comparing of which with your original list and the lists of those 
now at Fort Edward I can find the names of the men in the hands

Capt. Noah Emery, Sir, 

The above is a letter of his Excellency to Sir William, and from 
him to me to transmit to you; as he is so good as to endeavor to 
get our men out of the enemy's hands we should do all in our 
power, and I would have you procure the above mentioned list of 
your Company agreeable to these orders, and forthwith send them 
to Sir William. I am your humble servant,

KiTTERY, Oct. 25, 1757. 

Hon'' Sir. I have Maj^ Cutts order to send you an acc^ what 
men of my Company were at the Fort William Henry at the time 
of the capitulation. The names of the men inlisted by me for my 
company were Jonathan Blackman, Eleazar Ferguson jr, Elisha 
Goodwin, and Alexander Grant, all these were taken robbed, 
stripped naked and with difficulty escaped with their lives ; all are 
returned home. Elisha Goodwin brought home the small pox and 
died with it. Two others of my Company inlisted for the troop 
and one of them is now (if alive) with the Indians or French, 
namely William Furbush, also his son William Furbush inlisted in 
Berwick and is in captivity, if alive, both taken from that Fort.

TOWN RECORDS OF ALFRED, ME. 



GEO. M. PHCENIX. 



Alfred, January 25, 1885, 
The following list of marriages, births and deaths, which I have copied from the 
town records, is as nearly perfect as I am able to make it. The old Record Book 
is not all intelligible, it being much worn and faded ; and there are perhaps two 
names which I cannot tell whether they belong under the head of births, deaths or 
delinquent taxpayers. So I have omitted them. 

It will be observed that no marriages occurred from 1832 to 1841, and I men- 
tioned this fact to one of the town clerks who was in office at that time, and he 
informs me the record was kept during those years, but it cannot now be found.

SOCIETIES. 



Maine Historical Society.— The winter 
meeting of this society was held in their library 
in Portland,. Dec. 2ist, afternoon and evening, 
Pres. James W. Bradbury in the chair. There 
was an unusually large attendance. H. W. 
Bryant, secretary and librarian, reported a long 
list of donations, consisting of books, pictures, 
and other articles suitable for the cabinet of 
such a society. 

Hon. Joseph Williamson read' a paper on the 
" Colonization of Maine in 1604," and presented 
a biographical sketch of Gov. Thomas Pownal. 

W. H. Smith, Esq., read in his peculiar happy 
manner several brief biographies of once prom- 
inent persons, entitled "A Group of Miniatures." 

A sketch of " First Book of York Deeds," 
by H. W. Richardson, Esq., was read. 

James P. Baxter, Esq., lately home from Eng- 
land, where he has been collecting documents 
on the early history of the State, exhibited a 
collection of maps of the colony, 

Hon. W. W. Thomas, jr., formerly United 
States Minister to Sweden, gave an interesting 
sketch of the Island of Gotland-and its ancient 
city of Wisby. 

E. H. Elwell, Esq., read a carefully prepared 
paper on the " Schools of Portland." 



The meeting was a very interesting one, and 
the many and valuable donations of late, and its 
well prepared papers, show this society to be in 
a prospering condition. 



Sagadahoc Historical Society held its 
annual meeting at Bath, Jan. nth, and among 
the officers for the ensuing year Parker M. Reed 
was elected President, and J. Q. Douglas 
Secretary. 



Oneida Historical Society at Utica, 
N. Y. — We are in receipt of various communi- 
cations from this society, showing it to be a live, 
working, wide-awake historical society — one of 
the few of this kind in our country. The society 
was founded ten years ago, and we find among 
its officers and members some of the first men in 
the Empire State, who are gathering to its 
archives an abundance of rich material for the 
historical student and American chronicler. We 
should be glad to republish in the Recorder 
for the benefit of our readers some of the trans- 
actions of this society the past year, but for 
want of time and space shall only be able for 
the present to introduce to you its very genial 
Corresponding Secretary, Gen, C. W, Darling.

work has been expended upon the artistic and 
mechanical execution of the engraving as to

The First Prayer in Congress — An 
Ancient Petition for National Blessings Repro-

ceived through Mr. Judson, of Ogdensburg, a 
duplicate copy of the one found among the 
papers and in the handwritting of John Han- 
cock, the President of the Congress of '76. 
The prayer was offered by Rev. Jacob Duche, 
an Episcopal clergyman, on Wednesday, Sept. 7, 
1774. It follows : 

" O Lord, our Heavenly Father, high & mighty 
King of Kings — Lord of Lords ; who dost from 
thy Throne behold all Dwellers upon Earth & 
reignest with Power Supreme & Uncontroal'd 
over all Kingdoms, Empires & Governments, 
Look down in Mercy, we Beseech thee, upon 
these American States, who have fled to thee 
from the Rod of the Oppressor & thrown them- 
selves upon thy Gracious protection, desiring to 
be henceforth Dependent only upon thee. To 
thee have they appealed for the Righteousness 
of their cause. To thee do they now look up 
for That Countenance and Support which thou 
alone canst give. Take them, therefore. 
Heavenly Father, under thy nuturing Care. 
Give them wisdom in Council and Valour in the 
Field, — Defeat the Malicious Designs of our 
cruel adversaries — Convince them of the un- 
righteousness of their Cause, and if they Still 
Persist in Sanguinary purposes, O let the voice 
of thy own unerring Justice sounding in their 
Hearts Constrain them to drop the tveapons of 
War from their unnerved hands in the Day of 
Battle. Be thou present, O God of Wisdom, & 
Direct the Councils of this Hon. Assembly. 
Enable them to settle Things — upon the best & 
surest foundations — , that the Scene of blood 
may Speedily be Closed, That — Order, Har- 
mony & Peace may Effectually be restored & Truth

GOV. ROBERT PINCKNEY DUNLAP. 



BY M. F. KING. 




HE succession of the house of Hanover to the British 
crown gave little promise to the Protestant population of 
the North of Ireland. Party feeling was rife; the 
Jacobites were still active and aggressive ; and even the reign of 
William and Mary, from which so much had been hoped, had not 
altogether realized their anticipations. Fresh in the memory of 
the elders was "the day that the people of Cavan migrated in one 
body to Enniskillen," and "all Lisburn and Antrim together came 
pouring into Londonderry." 

The desperate valor, the heroic endurance, the noble self-sacrifice, 
and the terrible suffering of the " thirty thousand Protestants 
crowded behind the bulwarks of the City of Refuge," are inde- 
ccribable and almost unparalleled in history. 

It is therefore not surprising that the introduction of a foreign 

prince, whose personal appearance was awkward and insignificant, 

whose only knowledge of the English language was a few words 

he had learned by rote, and whose previous life had demonstrated 

41 



70 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

that he was entirely destitute of those qualities which inspire con- 
fidence, should be contemplated by the religious portion of the 
community with grave forebodings, and tempt them to seek 
elsewhere the liberty promised in the "Declaration of Right." 
This we assume, for soon after the ascension of George, the first, 
to the throne of Great Britain came a large emigration to this 
country from among the Scotch Presbyterians, settling numerously 
in New Hampshire and Maine. They brought the " never sur- 
render " spirit of Enniskillen and Londonderry. They had all the 
veneration for religion, respect for law, and eagerness for gain of 
their new neighbors, the Puritans, together with a strong desire for 
cultivating and disciplining the mind by education, a thing that 
had been somewhat neglected by the earlier settlers. The new 
comers were everywhere welcome; their presence produced no 
discord, and their influence, without doubt, hastened the advent of 
a Democratic-Republican government, of which the United States 
is today the best exemplar. 

In the spring of 1736, a vessel, with nearly two hundred emi- 
grants for the new world, was wrecked in a violent storm on the 
Isle of Sable, and nearly one-half of the passengers perished. 
The remainder, after much suffering, reached the Isle of Canso in 
boats, in a destitute condition. Through the aid of Gov. Crosby 
they were taken in a small fishing vessel to Cape Ann, in 
Massachusetts. Among the survivors was Robert,^ son of John 
and Jane Dunlap, who was born August, 171 5, in the parish of 
Banilla, County Antrim, Ireland. More of his family is not known 
by his descendants, than that he had an only sister, the wife of 
William Livingston. There is a tradition that the family reckoned 
Sir William Wallace among their ancestors. Robert was educated 
at the University of Edenburg, and after completing his collegiate 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 71 

course commenced the study of divinity. At the age of nineteen 
he received his degree, and was Hcensed to preach. His wife was 
Jane AlHson. Of her family or the date of their marriage we have 
no record. The oldest son of which we have any record was born 
at the house of Major Hildreth, in Dracut, Mass., in 1738, in which 
town he was employed as a teacher. There is a legend that they 
were married in Ireland, and that their first born, an infant, was 
washed out of its mother's arms and perished in the shipwreck. 
He could not have remained long at Dracut, for their next child 
w^as born at Nobleboro, in 1740, and this and other recorded dates 
makes it quite certain that he lived seven or eight years among the 
settlers in the vicinity of Sheepscot Bay. These people were 
mostly of his own country and faith, and so far as we know were 
at this time without church organization, and he was most likely 
employed among them both as teacher and preacher. 

In December, 1746, the town of Brunswick voted to invite Mr. 
Robert Dunlap to preach for them with a view to settlement. 
Accordingly during the summer of 1747, Mr. Dunlap, accompanied 
by Deacon Samuel Hinkley and Mr. Ebenezer Stanwood, who 
were appointed on behalf of the town commissioners to appear 
at the ordination and receive Mr. Dunlap as their minister, 
repaired to Boston. The ordination took place in a small brick 
meeting-house on School street, built by some French Protestants, 
who came hither after Louis XIV. had revoked the edict of 
Nantes, 1686. The Presbytery was composed of the pastor. Rev. 
Mr. LeMercier, Rev. Mr. Morton of Colrain, Rev. Mr. Davidson of 
Londonderry, N. H., Rev. Mr. Wilson, and Rev. Mr. McLothlin. 
At the settlement of Mr. Dunlap no mention is made of a church 
act ; all the necessary measures were taken by the town. It is 
therefore probable that the church at Brunswick was gathered 



/2 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

after Mr. Dunlap's ordination, and that it was originally established 
on Presbyterian principles. Later it assumed a mixed character, 
and became Congregationalist during the pastorate of Mr. Miller, 
in 1769. Mr. Dunlap continued in this charge for about thirteen 
years, when he was dismissed. He was never again settled in the 
ministry, continuing to live in Brunswick until his death, which 
took place June 26, 1776. His wife died March 31, 1797. 

His bible, in fair preservation, now a sacred relic in possession of 
a daughter in the fourth generation, was printed by Charles Bill, 
London, 1698. In it are recorded, by his own hand, the births of 
his children, as follows: John,^ born June 19, 1738; Elizabeth, 
July 16, 1740; Samuel, Oct. 16, 1742; Robert, April 8, 1747; Jane, 
Jan. 4, 1749; Hugh, July i, 1750. 

Elizabeth was born in what is now the town of Nobleboro, 
became the wife of Dea. Andrew Dunning, Dec. 29, 1768. and died 
in Brunswick. 

Samuel, born in Boothbay, married Susannah, daughter of 
Samuel and Jean (Lithgow) Stanwood, Jan. 13, 1769, and died in 
Brunswick, July 28, 1836. 

Robert, born in Newcastle, not married, was shipwrecked and 
lost on Hampton Beach, Dec. 25, 1776. 

Jane, born in Brunswick, not married; died in Brunswick, 1841. 

Hugh, born in Brunswick, Captain, 1779; unmarried; died in 
Brunswick, October, 1850, in his one hundred and first year. 

Robert Dunlap, of Topsham. came with family from Ireland 
prior to 1731. Had lot of land No. 61 assigned that year. His 
only son John had lot No. 60, 1738. There were two daughters, 
Jane, wife of Daniel Eaton of Brunswick, and Margaret, wife of 
James Potter, of Topsham. If they were kin of the Brunswick 
Dunlaps it is not known. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 73 

JoHN,^ the eldest son of Rev. Robert Dunlap, was born in 
Drauct, Mass., 1738. He was a man of great physical strength 
and indomitable spirit. His parents were poor, and needed his 
assistance. He was not content with the slow process for gain 
offered to the husbandman among these early settlers, and there- 
fore betook himself to the woods, at the proper seasons, in pursuit 
of those fur-bearing animals, whose peltry was always in good 
demand for exportation. In this dangerous and laborious work, his 
courage and great power of endurance, gave him success, and in 
time a sufficiency of property to engage in business more in 
harmony with his ambitions. 

In his long tramps through the wilderness he becime acquainted 
and made friends among the Indians. Of this number was Sabatis, 
who piloted Arnold and his command in their march to Canada. 
This famous chief is said to have been strongly attached to his 
friends among the whites, and often, even in his later days, visited 
the settlements, and not infrequently Brunswick, to see Capt. 
Dunlap. In 1757, during the French and Indian wars, Mr. Dun- 
lap was a soldier in Capt. John Getchell's company. As soon as 
his earnings admitted he engaged in trade, and for a time was an 
inn-holder, occupying the house afterwards the residence of his 
son-in-law. Dr. Isaac Lincoln. Talleyrand, the celebrated French dip- 
lomatist, during his exile was his guest whilst on the journey from 
Castine to Boston. Meanwhile his trade prospered; he engaged in 
shipping and various other enterprises, in which he was eminently 
successful, realizing a fortune estimated larger than that of any 
other person in the District of Maine. Notwithstanding the 
demand of his own affairs upon his time, he was not unmindful to 
public calls. In the midst of his most active business life, he 
served the town of Brunswick six successive terms (1799 to 1805) 



74 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

as Representative in the General Court. Although not himself a 
professor of religion, he was liberal in upholding the gospel min- 
istry. He was deeply interested in the subject of education, and 
one of the most active in securing for Brunswick its famous Bow- 
doin College, of which he was made one of the first Board of 
Overseers. 

About 1800 he built the stately mansion now occupied by Hon. 
Charles']. Oilman, ex-member of Congress, whose estimable wife is 
a daughter of his son David. In this house he lived, dispensing 
generous hospitality, and in it there yet remain many interesting 
relics of the family. For many years prior to his death, he was 
greatly troubled with gout, but notwithstanding his severe bodily 
sufferings his mind continued clear and vigorous to the end. 

An anecdote illustrates his practical turn of mind. In his later 
days he was fond of riding, and although unable to get in or out of 
his carriage without assistance, he preferred to go unattended. 
During one of these excursions, from a defect in the road, he found 
himself in an exceedingly unpleasant and dangerous position, from 
which, owing to his infirmity, he was unable to extricate himself. 
By lusty shouting he made himself heard by one of his sons, who 
came to his rescue. An intimate clerical friend then visiting at his 
house, thought it an excellent opportunity to inculcate a moral, and 
bring his mind into what he thought a proper realization of his 
dependence upon Divine Providence ; and so, while congratulating 
him upon his escape, failed not to express in earnest language, the 
thoughts uppermost in his own mind. " You are wrong, parson," 
was the old gentleman's reply, " Providence had nothing to do 
with the case ; the breeching was what saved me. I picked out the 
leather for that harness myself, and made sure to have it good and 
tough, for just such an emergency." During the political campaign 



I 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 75 

of his son's candidacy for Governor, the opposition speakers fre- 
quently said that Robert would have to "look out for his breeching." 
Capt. Dunlap married January 8, 1774, Jannette, daughter of 
David and Mary Dunning, of Brunswick. She was born January 
29, 1748. Their children, born in Brunswick, were: 

1 Robert, born Nov. 16, 1776 ; died young. 

2 John, born Mar. 9, 1774, was a merchant in Portland. He erected and 

dwelt in the large brick house corner of State and Danforth streets, now 
occupied as the " Female Orphan Asylum." He married, September 27, 
182 1, Lois, daughter of Apollos R. and Elizabeth Gushing of Portland, 
and widow of Capt. John Porter. Their daughter Elizabeth became the 
wife of James Russell Lowell. John died in Portland, July 14, 1842. 

3 David, born January 21, 1778. He resided in Brunswick, was a respected 

citizen and noted for his charities. He represented his town in the General 
Gourt of Massachusetts, and in the Legislature of Maine, and also was a 
member of the Governor's Gouncil in 1841. He was for many years a 
member of the Board of Overseers of Bowdoin Gollege.' He married, 
182 1, Nancy, daughter of Rev. Joseph McKeen d.d., the first president of 
Bowdoin Gollege ; and died Feb. 5, 1843. 

4 Samuel, born May 6, 1780 ; died young. 

5 Mary, born March 29, 1783 ; died young. 

Janette, the first wife of Gapt. John Dunlap died March 11, 1786. He married, 
2d, June 21, 1788, Mary, daughter of Richard and Marcy (Scot) Toppan 
or Tappan, of Newburyport, Mass. She died Sept. 21, 1838, aged 83 years. 

6 Richard Tappan, born June 28, 1789, settled in Brunswick; was, for a time. 

General of the militia. He was a man of excellent business ability, was 
engaged in trade and shipping, and was for many years president of the 
bank. His wife was Mary, daughter of Richard Greenleaf, of Brunswick. 
He died October 26, 1863. 

7 Robert, born Sept. 21, 1790 ; died young. 

8 Robert Pinckney, born August 17, 1794. 

9 Marcia Scott, born July 22, 1799, married Dr. Isaac Lincoln, 1820, and died 

in Brunswick, Feb. 2, 1833. Their son, Dr. John Dunlap Lincoln, was a 
member of the faculty of the Maine Medical School and ranked high in 
his profession. Both father and son were greatly beloved for their gener- 
ous and genial dispositions. 
Gapt. John Dunlap died July 30, 1824. 



76 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

Robert Pinckney Dunlap^ (Captain y^'/^/^,^ Reverend y^<9<5^r// ) 
was born in Brunswick, August 17, 1794. He prepared for college 
under the tutorage of Benjamin Hasey, Esq., of Topsham, and was 
one of the class of eight, who were graduated from Bowdoin in 18 15. 
Hon. George Evans was a classmate. He read law under the 
direction of Hon. Benjamin Orr, of Topsham, and in Newburyport, 
Mass., with Ebenezer Morely, Esq. He was admitted to the bar in 
18 1 8, and opened an office in his native town. It does not appear 
that he was especially devoted to the profession, although he con- 
tinued in practice for several years, and some of his efforts are 
complimentarily mentioned. His patrimony being ample, he was 
not dependent upon his profession and early turned his attention 
to politics, for which he had a decided preference. Few men have 
stood so high in public regard, and few, if any in this state, have 
been so frequently honored with important public trusts. In 182 1 
he was elected Representative to the Legislature, and re-elected the 
following year. In 1824 he was State Senator and continued in 
that office, with the exception of one year, 1829, until 1833, when 
he was made a member of the Executive Council. For four 
years he was President of the Senate. As a presiding officer he 
had few equals. His commanding presence, excellent voice, and 
intimate knowledge of parliamentary rules, together with his stately 
and urbane manners brought his service in this capacity into fre- 
quent requisition. In 1833 he was elected Governor. At this elec- 
tion was the first appearance of the Whigs under that distinctive 
title ; their candidate was Daniel Goodenow. The dissenting 
Democrats voted for Samuel E. Smith, who was then Governor, 
and the Anti-Masons for Thomas A. Hill,

ROGERS FAMILY OF FREEPORT. 



BY JOSIAH H. DRUMMOND. 




N tracing the family of William Rogers of Georgetown, 
some of whose sons moved to North Yarmouth, now Free- 
port, I found complications which I could not understand. 
I am indebted to William A. Mitchell, Esq., the efficient Town 
Clerk of Freeport for the explanation, which is that there was a 
distinct family, originating from a different source, which settled in 
that town. The information obtained by Mr. Mitchell seems worth 
preserving. 

I AND II. 

I. "Jeremiah Rogers was born, married and died in Hanover, Mass." He 

had two sons and one daughter, ^ Mark,=^ 3 James,^ and ^ Rhoda.^ 

III. 

II. Mark 2 married Mary Bray in Hanover; he moved to Bailey's Island, 

Harpswell and then to Freeport where he died in 1817, aged seventy-hve. 
He is said to have served both in the French and in the Revolutionary 
wars. His children w^ere :

III. James ^ moved to Freeport during the Revolutionary war. He married, 
July 3, 1783, Mrs. Mary Chapman ; she died June 29, 1799, leaving no 
issue; he married in 1803, Lydia Corfin, and died in 1816; he was a 



84 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

major of militia, and at his funeral eight majors were pall-bearers. Chil- 
dren born in Freeport : 

14. Chapman, 3 b. Nov. 5, 1803; he married June 11, 1831, Olive Fogg ; she died 

June 13, 1834 ; he never re-married but died in Freeport, without issue.

V. Polly3 (Mark 2), married; 'Andrew Mitchell and they had one son.

25. Lydia Bailey.'* 

26. James Bailey.'* 

27. Frederic Bailey.'* 

28. Margaret Bailey.'*

I think her first husband was Nathaniel Mitchell, as he And Mary 
Rogers were "published" June 25, 1783 and married July 17, 1783. 

VI. Jeremiah^ Mark^^ married February 23, 1792, Abigail Curtis; children 

born in Freeport :

The foregoing is taken from the records of Freeport, but Mr. Mitchell gives 
Ammi Ruhamer between Nancy and John.

XIX. Deborah Rose,3 {Rhoda""), married Samuel Dillingham. Their chil- 

dren were : 

75. Samuel Doughty Dillingham.'* 
"jG. Marcey Dillingham.'* 

'j'j. Thomas Rogers Dillingham.'* 

78. Joseph Dillingham.'* 

79. Deborah Dillingham.'* 

I do not feel sure that Jeremiah^ died in Hanover ; the following 
exasperating statements appear in the Freeport records : 
" Maj. Rogers's stepmother died Apl. 20, 1795." 
" Maj. Rogers's wife died June 29, 1789." 
" Maj. Rogers's father died Feb'y. 24, 1803." 

"Maj. James Rogers and Miss Lydia Coffin," were published March 19, 
1803. 

Other records indicate that " Maj. James Rogers " was the same 
person mentioned in all these extracts ; and I am, therefore, inclined 
to the opinion that Jeremiah Rogers and his second wife came to 
Freeport in their old age and died there. 

My search was complicated by a curious coincidence : James 
[ No. 3, above ], had a first wife, Mary, and a second wife, Lydia, 
and James, who went from Freeport to Bowdoin (whose family I 
was tracing), also had a first wife, Mary, and a second wife Lydia,

HISTORICAL EXCERPTA FROM MY NOTE BOOKS. 



BY J. P. BAXTER. 




[Hitherto Unpublished.] 

T is common to charge New England Puritanism with over-, 
strictness, and to suppose that prosecutions for trifling 
offences were peculiar to the New World, but this is as 
great an error as supposing a belief in witchcraft to have been indig- 
enous to its soil. The errors of our forefathers were all imported, 
and many which have been eradicated from the vigorous soil of 
New England still cling, albeit with a feeble hold, to the less stimu- 
lating soil of the Old World. How much this reads like entries 
in our York Records. 

1660. " Jno Wood prosecuted for walking on the Hoe in sum- 
mer time." (The Hoe is a public promenade at Plymouth, Eng-^ 
land.) 

" Jno. Olde keeping men drinking yesterday, being Lord's day." 



94 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

" George Crag for suffering company in his house to drink burnt 
wine sermon time." 

" Petition of Tradesmen of the borough of Plymouth praying 
that John Normans a stranger and recent comer (who having served 
no apprenticeship in the town, has nevertheless presumed to follow 
divers trades therein), may be ordered to desist from impoverishing 
the proper inhabitants of the town by exercising the art of a gun- 
smith and following other callings." This is signed by twelve mer- 
chants. 

There are many curious documents in the dark old building in 
Fetter Lane which throw light upon the dismal condition of affairs 
in the middle of the seventeenth Century, when the rights of men 
were but little respected. An earnest petition of Captain Sam. 
Wilson states that his vessel has been seized in the Downs for hav- 
ing received a bundle of books for New England, in which was 
concealed a letter from Hook a dissenting minister, and he prays 
that she may be released, as he has " 1500 1 of other men's goods 
on board," and knew nothing of the contents of the bundle found 
on his vessel. 

This petition was granted only on condition of his binding him- 
self in the sum of one thousand pounds, to secure and deliver the 
person of Hook to the government ; and to clear his vessel he 
actually gave such a bond with four securities, although the fulfil- 
ment of it was next to impossible. 

The nature of this letter may probably be seen from one directed 
to Davenport, Mar. 2, 1663, in which are given "detailed accounts 
of the sufferings of God's people from the act of uniformity, by 
which 1500 or 1600 ministers of ability are rejected, and ignorant, 
scandalous and unworthy men put in their places." The writer 
states that private meetings are so closely watched that none of the 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 95 

ejected ministers dare preach, and that the " gaols are so filled that 
many are stifled through thronging together." The Anabaptists 
he says " hold out long, and Quakers to the last ; most of the Pres- 
byterians have conformed to the present form of worship, and all 
would have submitted had not the covenant pinched them ; but God 
has judged some of them. Suinock of Thames St., yielding to put 
on a surplice, died soon after ; another was killed in riding on his 
way to conform." He further says that " Mr. Leviston, a famous 
minister, is banished, and Dr. Layton turned papist;" and cites 
instances of " the delivery of the godly from indictments." 

The churches are almost deserted ; " On festival days only the 
parson and 3 or 4 at devotions ; the clergy preach very poorly," 
and their lives are disorderly. " Some are latitudinarians and are 
abhorred and despised. Three churches in London meet privately 
on dark winter evenings, and break bread." 

1665. Submission of the Eastern Indians. Extract from a 
" Report from His Ma^^^^ Commas Qf jvyf^w England." 

" The Sachims did thankfully receive two Coats presented to 
them in his Ma^^^^ name. 

In acknowledgm* of their Subjection They are to pay yearly 
upon the 29th of May Two Wolfe-Skins to His Ma^^^ and did now 
send Two Capps of Peag and Two Clubbs inlayed with Peag for a 
Present to the King and a ffeather mantle and,a Porcupine Bagg 
for a Present to the Queen." 

GOVERNOR DUDLEY AND THE RE-BUILDING OF PEMAQUID FORT. 

After the destruction of Pemaquid Fort by the French, Gov- 
ernor Dudley had plans made for re-building it, realizing the neces- 
sity of having a garrison there to protect the eastern settlers. This 
proposition met with violent opposition, and, in the end, the Gov- 
ernor was defeated. 



96 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

The matter appears to have been prominently brought before the 
assembly by Dudley in an address October, 1702, in which he 
advised the re-building of the fort. He said " when it is considered 
that all the stores necessary are in place, the ffoundations yet good 
and lime to be had very near and easy, the Rebuilding cannot be 
thought to be halfe the original charge, added to this I must 
Acquaint you, that the Indians in their Treaty, and Since, urge the 
necessity of another Trading House beyond that at Casco Bay, 
and I judge it as necessary as they, if we intend to hold them 
Depending, and that may as well be at Pemaquid as any where 
else." The rebuilding of the fort encountered much opposition at 
several sessions of the General Court during the year, and was 
finally voted upon adversely. In a letter to the Earl of Nottingham 
dated Dec. loth, 1702, Dudley writes, "The last ship I also humbly 
offered your Lordship what I said to the Assembly referring to Her 
Majesty's Commands for the Rebuilding of Pemaquid, and the set- 
tlement of Salaries, and the support of the Civill List, but a six 
weeks session which ended the 21st of November could obtain 
nothing from the Assembly on either point. I have Enclosed a 
Copy of the minutes of Pemaquid, particularly that your Lordship 
may be Assured of my Diligence therein, wherein your Lordship 
will please to observe that the Committee of the Assembly I car-

them, that I could by no means allow such a Refusall ; and upon 
which I should immediately have Dissolved them. They better 
Considered and Acknowledged their mistake, but the Conference 
was ineffectual!, though at the same time the letters from the Right

Honorable the Lords Commissioners for trade and Plantations 
referring to that very affair came to my hands and was Read to 
them, upon which so many of the Councill Consented to the 
Return of the Committee, as made a Quorum, but the Assembly 
at last Refused it." 

Dudley again writes Feb. nth, 1702-3, that he has received. 
" Her Majesty's Command for the rebuilding the ffort at Pemaquid, 
with a tower on the point of Friars Island, a Battery on , Wood 
Island and another on Clark's Island. Those are all in the Prov- 
ince of Mayne and Countrey of Pemaquid belonging to the Prov- 
ince of the Massachusetts." He reports on the fourth of April that 
he has held another assembly and pressed them earnestly to re- 
build Pemaquid — " the Councill with difficulty consented but the 
Assembly flatly refused it." Dec. 19th, 1703, Dudley writes 
acknowledging the Queen's order for rebuilding Pemaquid and 
reports that the Assembly still refuses to act in accordance, and 
says he " finds it impossible to move the sort of men that Love not 
the Crown and Government of England to any manner of obedi- 
ence." After all their former votes, he continues, "for the rebuild- 
ing of Pemaquid, I could not obtain their vote at this session which 
might have showed their Obedience though without the Represen- 
tatives grant of the money it would have done nothing." Nothing 
was done and Nov. ist, 1705 Dudley again writes giving an account 
of his proceedings with the Assembly which is called on purpose 
to consider her Majesty's letter about rebuilding Pemaquid. Still 
they refused and addressed the Queen, setting forth the poverty of 
the Province, and Dudley apparently gives up the fight, after writing 
to England that, " If there might be an Establishment of a Scotch 
or English Colony at Pemaquid or Eastward, It would hold a 
thousand familys and is the best part of these Provinces for the

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, MAINE/ 
SETTLEMENT OF THE TOWNSHIPS. 



Rev. G. M. Bodge, East Boston, Mass. 




' [Continued from page 4'/.'] 

ENDING negotiations with the Indians, improvement and settlement in 

the new townships were interrupted. In the meantime the Proprietors 

went on quietly voting divisions of land, levying taxes upon the shares, 

and taking all the necessary steps possible, to push forward the future 

interests of the enterprise. 

March ist, 1739, they voted to extend the time for the completion of the saw- 
mill to September ist, 1739. This mill was finished within the following year. 
The Contractor's report and plan were submitted and accepted Dec. 13th, 1740. 
This plan or " Piatt " is neatly copied into the Proprietor's Record-Book and shows 
the mill to have been built nearly on the site of the present mill, just above the 
rocky bluff, and near the centre of the four acres, left common for the use of the 
settlers, extending back sixteen rods, and forty rods along the river; The southern

bound of this common, was the road laid out between Numbers i and 2 of the first 
division of one hundred acre lots ; A " Road down the River to the Rafting Place," 
was left also for the accommodation of the settlement. Ten acres of lot No. 2, out 
of the South-west corner next the common, were granted as a part of the mill- 
right, to the owners and their heirs forever ; And the Proprietors doubtless hoped 
that a thriving village was soon to grow up about *' Naquamqueeg' " Falls that 
should distance all competitors. 

At the meeting Nov. 20, 1740, was submitted the report of the Committee 
appointed to lay out sixty-three one hundred acre lots, and showed that they had 
attended to that duty, and had laid out the lots as near as might be to the Home- 
lots. Beginning at No. i of the Home-lots, at the "Large Pine Tree marked 
E. B. i" (whose site is now occupied by a stone post). This division extended along 
the first or " Main " road, laid out a little West of North, to the stream, since called 
" Pleasant River." These lots which bordered on the river were as finely located 
as any in New England. No. i, drawn to Benj-'^ Hendly, embraced the noble farm 
known for several generations as the " Ray Place," and was bounded on the East 
by the Main road, on the North by the road running westwardly to the river between 
Nos. I and 2. No. 2 was considered a choice lot, and was voted to be granted as 
a choice to William Goodwin in satisfaction for his services as clerk. The lots 
varied in width according as the course of the river gave them greater or less 
length, allowance also being made for brooks, rocky hills, and ponds in the en- 
deavor to make the lots of equal value ; thus No. 4, which embraced the lower 
portion of "Black Brook," so called, was 122 rods wide, while No. 5 next above 
from its length was but 76 1-2 rods wide. The upper river lot of this division was 
No. 9, the Northern boundary of which was Pleasant River. No. 10 was laid out 
on the opposite side of the road with the river as its Northern bound ; and the suc- 
ceeding lots were run back on the road till the home-lots were again reached ; No. 
17 was laid out opposite No. i, and included the farm of ihe late John Webb, Esq. 
Then a jump to Falmouth line (as originally laid out), was made, and No. 18 was 
laid out there, and succeeding lots laid out on the back of the home-lots, just men- 
tioned, Nos. 34 and 35, being bounded by Pleasant River and thus running back 
and forth on the back of the last tier of lots, from the old Falmouth line to Pleas- 

'The typographical error in the former mention of this name, puts z, instead of the intended q, an 
evident absurdity in an Indian name ; It is difficult to determine, from the old records just what the 
word is. The second syllable looks as much like^waw, z.s quam, but the latter is the most com- 
mon in Indian names of places. 



100 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

ant River, the sixty-three lots were laid out, No. 63 being in the fourth tier of lots 
counting from the main road, its north bound leaving one lot between it and the 
river. These lots were drawn as in the list above, 2d Division. 

From a quaint little old record-book which was made out by the Surveyor to 
accompany the Plan of Division I note that : 

''The Proprietors voted June y^ 5, 1740, to lay out 63 lots of 100 acres contigu- 
ous to the home-lots and as near as may be to Presumscot River." 

Wm. Goodwin, of the Committee, and two chainmen attended to this duty with 
William Pote jun^ as Surveyor. The Surveyor's plot and description bear the date 
of October 2 2d, 1740. The plan was accepted as voted above. The accounts pre- 
sented March 5th, 1741, indicate that Thomas Chute was one of the chainmen and 
probably William Mayberry was the other, and that Ebenezer Hawks was with 
them one day at least. More than these were doubtless employed, as the work was 
difficult, the lines lying through thick woods and the bounds marked by "blazed" 
trees or sometimes scored rocks. The expense of the survey of this Division was 
something more than ;^8o. 

At the meeting of the proprietors June 5, 1740, It was also voted "That the 
Meeting-House shall be forthwith so far finished as to render it convenient for the 
inhabitants to meet in for Divine worship ; by laying the lower floor with sufficient 
sleepers and Double Boarded and at least four glass windows in the sides and ends 
where most convenient." Also, "That there shall be allowed and paid out of the 
Proprietor's treasury, to such suitable person as shall be by the Committee pro- 
cured to Preach the word of God to the Inhabitants of the Township at such Rate 
as the Com*^^ shall agree for p^ Sabbath, for every Sabbath that he shall attend 
that service." 

Thus it will be seen that the Proprietors were pushing forward as rapidly as pos- 
sible the settlement of'their township, in fulfilment of the terms of the grant. (The 
time had been extended on account of the trouble with the Indians, but the limit 
was nearly reached again.) The Learned Orthodox Minister was yet to be found. 
The Meeting-House was a very poor affair as we shall see hereafter. The houses 
of the grantees, and the specified " seven acres brought to English grass " were 
" few and far between." To any one unfamiliar with the oldtime method of town- 
ship settlement, it will be a matter of surprise that so very few of the grantees be- 
came actual settlers. But this was the usual way, very few intended to become 
actual settlers, and it was necessary that some men of means should become 



Maine Historical a7id Geitealogical Recorder, 101 

interested in the settlements in order to co-operate with the actual settlers who 
needed their help, in the first years particularly. 

The most of the grantees fulfilled the conditions of their grant by hiring some 
one who would settle upon the home-lot and fulfil the conditions for the Grantee 
and receive in payment the half or whole of the home-lot, " One mile long and ten 
rods wide." Many of the settlers served two masters at the same time by building 
one house upon the line and then clearing a part of two lots and thus satisfying 
the requirement for the grantees and securing for themselves two and sometimes 
three lots for farms. 

" It is impossible now to follow exactly the course of events in the settlement of 
the new township depending, as all genuine history must, upon records of men, 
facts and institutions, preserved in public archives or in private hands, which 
records, after a century and a half, are somewhat fragmentary. Traditions of 
course, have their proper place, and must not be undervalued. And especially must 
published statements, made by responsible and intelligent writers, be received with 
respectful credit. In the excellent "Centennial Address," delivered in Windham 
July 4th, 1839, t>y Thomas Laurens Smith, Esq., to which we shall have occasion 
to refer frequently in this history, it is stated definitely, that " Capt. Thomas Chute 
commenced the first settlement in this town July 30th, 1737." And while I 
have not found any positive evidence of this, I am inclined to believe, 
from a study of the habits of Mr. Chute, that he would make a point of a 
formal beginning of his settlement, and would record the date as he did many 
other events. Mr. Smith was diligent in gathering up occurrences and dates, and 
I think there is little doubt that Thomas Chute cleared some part of his home-lot 
and thus began the settlement of the township. It is particularly gratifying to me 
to be able to give the ancient document below which has lain in the musty old files 
of Massachusetts, unknown, for a hundred and thirty years. The Committee was 
appointed by the Proprietors April 7th, 1759, to investigate the affairs of the town- 
ships and report the amount of land cleared and families settled. 

"The following Report of the Committee is preserved in the Massachusetts 
Archives Vol. 117, p. 481, and although it was made some twenty years after the 
first settlement, it will be seen to relate particularly to the beginning of things in 
the Plantation.

THE DOANE FAMILY IN AMERICA/ 



BY GEORGE DOANE RAND, ESQ. 




|OHN DOANE, b. 1590, d. Feb. 21, 1685. He came to 
Plymouth, Mass., from England with his wife Abigail in 
one of the first three ships. As he was an associate and 
intimate friend of Gov. Prince probably he came with him in the 
Fortune next after the Mayflower in 1621. His farm of about 200 
acres was situated north of the harbor, and his house stood near the 
water; as late as 1844 the remains of his cellar were visible, and 
some of the stone boundary posts of his farm bearing his initials, 
were standing. He was a deacon of the Church of Plymouth, highly 
respected for his wisdom and piety, and filled many offices of im- 
portance and trust. In 1633 he was chosen as one of the Gover- 
nor's assistants, and in 1642 he was assistant to Gov. Winslow. In 
1636 he was one of the commission to revise the Laws of Plymouth 
Colony. He was deputy to the Colony Court from Eastham for 
many years till old age prevented. In 1644 he was one of the Com- 
mission sent to examine Cape Cod lands; this resulted in the settle- 
ment of Eastham, and in the same year he, with Gov. Prince and five 
others, prominent men of the Colony and Church of Plymouth set- 
tled in Eastham where he henceforth lived and died. The records 
of the Colony read, " The Church of Plymouth regretted their 

' This paper has been compiled from Family Records and papers in the possession of members 
of the Family. The Family is a large one, and as some of them removed to Maine when it was a 
part of Massachusetts, some of the descendants of such are now probably among us, whose line of 
descent is uncertain. Joseph, Samuel, John and David Doane, all of Eastham, Cape Cod, received 
grants of land for their services in the Narragansett War, 1733, and in 1750 lands were conveyed in 
Gorham (Maine) to Joseph Doane of Eastham, and one or more Doanes settled early in Gorham.

departure, for they who went out from her, were among the most 
respectable of the inhabitants." 

Records of land titles and deeds concerning him are to be fiund 
in the Plymouth Records, and a copy of his will is here given. 

WILL OF DEACON JOHN DOANE. 

" Eastham in the Colony of New Plymouth in New England this i8th 
DAY OF May 1678. 

I John Doane aged eight-eight years or thereabouts in consideration of my many 
infirmities that do daily attend me, may in a moment close up my life, and therefore 

I do think it meet to make this my last will and testament And to my 

loving Wife, I give, loan, and bequeathe my new dwelling House situated and being 
in the town of Eastham, with all the upland and meadow about the said House, 
and two acres of Meadow land more or less commonly called the Bay. Likewise I 
give to my loving Wife all my moveables of all kinds as household stuff of all kinds 
or whatsoever moveable, and now I give wholly and fully for her comfortable sub- 
sistence during her life and after decease I give the Household and Meadow land 
to my daughter Abigail Doane and make my son John Doane whole and sole 
executor. 

And to my said son John Doane I give twenty-seven acres of said land more or 
less, seven acres of it lying joining to a piece of land the town granted him, and fifteen 
acres of lying on the west side of Rock, Harbor' Mouth, and the other five acres 
lyeth at Nauset joining to my said John, his land, And I give to my said son John 
Doane eight acres of land at North of land with all my right and interest in the 
town of Eastham as being a town purchase, and to my said son John I give a tract 
of land granted me by the Honorable Court holden at Plymouth by His Majesty' 
order enacted with power to do equity and justice to his poor distressed subjects. 
The grant was a hundred acres of upland meadow answerable to it. 

I give to my son Daniel Doane all that land which he now liveth on, and twenty 
acres of land next a place called the Ivy swamp, and I give to my said son Daniel 
four acres and a half of Meadow situate and being on the Southerly side of the 
Boat Meadow, I give to my son Ephraim Doane twenty acres of land and four acres 
of Meadow be it more or less, and being in Billingsgate, And I give to my grand 
daughter Margaret Hicks one trunk and one pair of sheets. I give to my above 
named son John Doane my good table and lid that belongs to it and make him

my whole and sole executor to this my last will and testament, and after my wife is 
deceased and the debts are paid out of my estate to divide what is left equally 
among all my sons and daughters. 

And do I leave you all to the Lord in whose hand I desire you all may be kept 
by His Almighty Power through faith unto salvation, through which is my great and 
earnest desire of you all, and kept under hopefulness, that you will live in love and 
peace, walking in love one with another, and the God of love and peace be with 
you and bring you to the Kingdom of Jesus at last.

Were the Appraisers, and inventory made 21st Feby 1685 and recorded 8th 
June 1687 and on 29th May 1686 Abigail Doane made oath to the truth of it. 

A Doane Family memorial meeting was held at Eastham, Mass., 
Sept. 10, 1869, to witness the erection of a rustic monument where 
once stood the dwelling of Dea. John Doane. This site is on the 
eastern side of the town near the " Backside " and the head of 
Nauset Bay. The stone is a rough block of granite and bears the 
following inscription: "Dea. John Doane born 1590. Here 1644. 
Died 1685. Date, (stone erected) 1869." The monument was 
placed here by the Hon. John Doane of Orleans, on which occasion 
Heman Doane Esq. addressed the meeting with appropriate 
remarks, after which the following original hymn was sung : 

OUR FATHERS. 

I From England's shores our Fathers came, 
In days of long ago. 
But not for wreaths of earthly fame 
Or sordid fortune, — No. 



122 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

2 Far brighter visions lured them on 

To brave the Ocean's roar, 
And seek a resting place upon 
New England's savage shore. 

3 A land of liberty they sought 

Where persecutions cease 
To break the chain by tyrant's wrought 
And serve their God in peace. 

4 From seed our Fathers planted here 

A mighty tree has grown 
The fruit it bears from year to year 
O'er all the land is strown. 

5 Their memory we their children bless 

And Heaven with all our powers, 
Who sent our sires to plant for us 
This goodly land of ours. 

6 We'll talk and sing their virtues o'er 

Their honored graves among 
While oceans "bounding billows" roar 
Or " Auld Lang Syne " is sung.

SOME OF THE DESCENDANTS OF EDWARD 
OAKMAN OF MARSHFIELD. 



COMPILED BY MRS. S. E. FLITNER, BOSTON, MASS. 




DWARD^" OAKMAN, youngest son of Tobias,' Sam- 
uel/ of Scarborough, Me., lived and died in Marshfield. 
The date of his birth is unknown. Church books record 
"Edward Oakman died 28 May 1791 being upwards of yo years of 
age!' He was executor of his father's will, dated 21 Mch., 1750 (?), 
and presented for probate 26 July, 1750. He married about 1736, 
Sarah, daughter of SamueP^ and Bethiah (Waterman) Doggett. 
She was born in Marshfield, October, 17 16, and died in that town 
22 January, 1794. Children: 

*See Recorder Vol. Ill, p. 230. 

tThere were two emigrants by name of Doggett or Daggett. John,' who came with Winthrop, 
1630, made his principal home at the " Vineyard," but was sometimes at Marshfield, Rehoboth and 
other places. Thomas,' perhaps a brother of the above, came from Norwich, Eng., in the " Mary 
Ann" of Yarmouth, 1637, aged 30. Being an enterprising man and possessing means, he bought 
land in several places — Middleboro', Bristol, R. I., and on March i, 1664, purchased land in Marsh- 
field of Peregrine White. t He is supposed to be the Thomas Doggett who lost his wife, name 
unknown, at Concord, Mass., 1642, and in 1654, married, second, in Marshfield, Joan Chilling- 
worth, who Savage says was widow of Thomas Chillingworth. He died in Marshfield, 18 Sept., 
1692. In his will, dated 20 Jan., 1689, he mentions son Samuel several times. This Samuel,^ son 
of first (?) wife, time and place of his birth not known, married first at Marshfield, 24 Jan., 1682, 
Mary, daughter of John Rogers, son of Thomas Rogers,J who came in the " Mayflower," 1620. 
Samuel, 3 first child of SamueF and Mary Rogers, was born in Marshfield, 24 Dec, 1683. In 1721 
he signs a receipt for a legacy given him by his "grandfather, John Rogers." Mary (Rogers) 
Doggett died at Marshfield, 15 April, 1690. SamueP married, second, Bathsheba, daughter of 
Abraham Holmes, 21 Jan., 1691. He died 1725 (?). In his will, dated 13 Jan., 1724, he mentions 
wife Bathsheba and son Samuel several times. SamueP Doggett married in Marshfield, 2 Feb., 
1710, Bethiah Waterman. She was born in Marshfield, 20 Aug., 1687. She was daughter of 
Joseph^ and Sarah (Snow) Waterman. Joseph^ was son of Robert,' who married Elizabeth Bourne 
1638, who with a brother, Thomas,' landed at Plymouth, 1635 °^ 1636. They were sons of Thomas 
Waterman of Norwich, Eng. Sarah (Snow) Waterman died 11 Dec, 174T, aged 90. She was the 
daughter of Anthony Snow, who came in the "Ann," 1623. Was at Plymouth 1638, and at Marsh- 
field 1643. ^s married, 1639, Abagail, daughter of Richard' Warren, who came in the "May- 
flower." 1620, whose wife was Elizabeth (Jouatt) Marsh. Richard' was son of Christopher Warren 
of England, whose wife was Alice, daughter of Thomas Webb of Sidnam, in Devonshire. § 
SamueP Doggett moved to Boston, where he died Aug. (.^), 1745. His wife died in Boston, 1747.

Bethiah (Oakman) Stevens, married Samuel Eastman, (?) whose father 
Samuel was a brother of Abagail Eastman, the mother of Daniel Webster.

with the British near Eastport, Maine, and narrowly escaped death, a ball

Marshfield. Their intentions were published 28 June, 1779. It seems

* The Agrys and Demmicks were from Barnstable. Anna was a descendant of Elder Thomas 

Dhnoc (spelt variously, Dimocke, Dimmick, Dimock), early identified with the history of Barnstable, 

and died in 1658. His wife was Anne. They had Shubael,^ bap. 15 Sept., 1644, who finally settled 

with a part of his family in Mansfield, Conn., and died 29 Oct., 1732. Was deputy several years, 

selectman and ensign. Was known as Dea. Dimmock. By marriage with Joanna Bursley, 1663, 

he had Thomas,^ b. 1664. He was a captain at Damariscotta in the Indian war, and was killed 

1697 — a brave officer. By wife Desire, who married, second, Col. John Thacher, 1698, he had 

Edward,'* b. 5 July, 1692. His wife was Hannah. This Edward was without much doubt the 

father of Anna Agry. He was at the siege of Louisburg. Was attached Col. Gorham's regiment, 

and is spoken of as one of the leading officers at the reduction of the fortress, 1745, th-e year he 

was killed.! Niles, in his " Wonder-working Providence," mentions him in these lines: 

" And Capt. Demmick, slain by heathen's hand, 
As was his father under like command." 

A paper, now lost sight of, was once treasured in the Agry family. It was a captain's commis- 
sion from Gov. Shirley, Feb. 15, 1744, to Edward Demmick.

SamueP Oakman was in early life a sea-captain. He came when 
a young man to Gardinerston/^ and engaged in shipbuilding. He 
soon won the respect and confidence of the community, and became 
an enterprising and influential citizen. In 1785 he owned the 
largest property in town, with the exception of R. H. Gardiner, 
Esq., non-resident. In 1803 he was the largest taxpayer. Some of 
the vessels owned by Mm were as follows: Brig "Silvena," built at 
Bath, 1788, Amos* Oakman, commander; schooner "Polly," built 
at Pittston, 1792; ship "Venus," built at Pittston, 1795; schooner 
"Hannah," built at Pittston, 1799, Samuel Oakman, jr., commander; 
ship "Venus," built at Pittston, 1800, D. P. Bond, part owner; 
schooner "Hannah Matilda," built at Pittston, 1805; brig "Eliza," 
built at Pittston, 1808, Francis Flitner, part owner, Samuel Oak- 
man, jr., commander; ship " Alfred," built at Pittston, 181 2, Benj. 
Trott, part owner. He bought ninety-four acres of land of Benj. 
Colburn,^ bounded northerly by Reuben Colburn's, westerly by the 
Kennebec river, southerly by John Searl's land,^ and easterly by 
Nahumkeag Pond. Here he built his home, a two-story square 
house"^ of Colonial style and furnished lavishly for the times. 
Carved oak furniture and damask draperies were brought in his 
ships from over the sea. With one exception he owned the only 
chaise in town. Grand old elms, whose overhanging branches now 
form a grateful shade on each side of the street, were set out by 
him before the present century. 

a In 1779 the Plantation of Gardinerston was incorporated as the town of Pittston. In 1803 it was 
divided, and the part on the west side of the river was called Gardiner. 

b Deed recorded 10 Sep. 1777. 

c John Searl's land was probably that owned by Oliver Colburn, who built the dwelling house 
now standing and after occupied by his son John Colburn; now owned by Capt. George Bailey. 

d This house was torn down and replaced by a cottage about 1837, by Samuel Cutts, who bought 
the land on the east side of the road.

NOTES, QUERIES, ETC. 



A genealogy of the Emery Family is being 
prepared for publication by the undersigned, 
who solicits communication with any who may 
be able to furnish records or other information 
pertaining to the work. 

Rev. Rufus Emery, 
244 Grand street, Newburgh, N. Y. 



The Clarke-Clark Genealogy. An octavo 
volume, containing nearly 200 pages. The price 
of the bound volume, sent by mail, post-paid, 
is $2.50. The price of the pamphlet, sent also 
by mail, postpaid, is $1.50. The bound volumes 
contain the portraits; the pamphlets do not. 
In other respects the contents of each are pre- 
cisely alike. Those who order the book will 
please state which kind they desire, and make 
their remittance by post office money order 
when practicable ; otherwise by registered let- 
ter. If sent by post office money order make it 
payable at Milwaukee, Wis., to Rev. W. W. 
Johnson, of North Greenfield, Wis. All letters 
should be addressed, 

Rev. W. W. Johnson, 

North Greenfield, Wis. 



Wanted for publication, a copy of John 
Wadleigh's Will, dated 3 ]w\y, 1672. 

Wm. M. Sargent. 



Wanted, information of the parentage and 
family connection of James Frost of Kitterv, 
who was born near 1685, and who married Mar- 
garet, daughter of William Goodwin, in 1707. 
Wm. M. Sargent. 



Dyer.— Who was Wilham Dyer of Bidde- 
ford, 1680, and was he the ancestor of the 
Dyers in York county.? H. W. B. 



Small. — Who has a genealogy of descend- 
ants of first Francis Small in this country; and 
where is the original Indian deed to Francis 
Small of the Ossipee tract? W. M. S. 



Gerrish. — George Gerrish, on June 18, 1794, 
commenced the publication at Salem, Washing- 
ton Co., N. Y., of the Times, or Natioiial 
Co7trier, as editor and proprietor. He con- 
tinued to publish it about six months, when, as I 
understand, the building and materials of the 
printing office were destroyed by fire. This was 
the first effort to establish a newspaper north of 
Dansingburgh in the State of New York. I 
cannot learn wnere Mr. Gerrish came from or 
where he went after leaving Salem. The issues 
of this journal exhibit evidence of more than 
ordinary ability. He left Salem in the winter or 
spring of 1798. Information is desired of his 
ancestry, date and place of birth and history, 
or any facts tending to throw light on the sub- 
ject. James Gibson, 

Salem, Washington Co., N. Y. 



Savage. — I desire to trace the pedigree of 
Jacob Savage, Sr., who, as I have been inform- 
ed, was born at Wiscasset, Me., probably about 
1755-60. He married Hannah Gray, by whom 
he had the following children : Jacob, John, 
Abraham, Isaac, Perez, Bezar, Temperance, 
Martha, Mary and Elizabeth. His son Jacob is 
said to have been born in Anson, Me., 20 Dec, 
1792, and probably others, if not all, of his 
children were born there. I am confident that 
he was a descendant of Maj. Thomas Savage of 
Boston, but I have not been able to make the 
connection, although I have an account of sev- 
eral hundred of the latter's posterity. I would 
be pleased to exchange the information I have 
relative to the genealogy of this family for that 
which some other person may possess. Who 
can assist me } B. F. Cummings, jr., 

P. O. Box 695, Salt Lake City, Utah.

[From the Portland Advertiser, May 21, 1887.] 
A Collection of Maine "Wills — Mr. Sargent's Forthcoming Volume. 
It is well known that William M. Sargent, Esq., of Portland, has been engaged 
for some months in transcribing the first four volumes of York Deeds, under the 
sanction of the Maine Historical Society for publication by John T. Hull. These 
records begin in 1642, and are the foundations of the land titles of Maine. Until 
1760 York County included the entire State. But the records in the registry of 
deeds do not complete the chain of evidence of land titles. Estates passed also 
by will, and Mr: Sargent has taken occasion to copy for publication all the Maine 
wills recorded prior to 1760. These wills are not all to be found by searching in 
the Probate Office at Alfred. There are 70 in the early court records, 15 in the 
Registry of Deeds, and seven recorded upon loose sheets, especially liable to loss, 
before the Probate Office was established. Some of them have been defaced; 
many are illegible by those who are unfamiliar with T7th century manuscript ; a few 
have been lost already, but in all there are 436 wills extant, recorded prior to 1760, 
and these Mr. Sargent proposes to publish in a single volume of six or seven hun- 
dred pages, wdlh copious indexes and notes showing all the probate proceedings in 
each case. Advance sheets from the printers show that the book will be hand- 
somely printed in large, clear type. The text will be an exact transcript of the 
original records, literatim et punduatim. The publication of this volume will not 
only rescue these muniments of title from the danger of destruction or abstraction, 
but will greatly facilitate the researches of conveyancers, historians, genealogists, 
antiquaries, the descendants of,. our early settlers and the present holders of the 
titles concerned. The danger of destruction will be especially appreciated in 
Cumberland county, where tKe loss of probate files by fire in 1866 has occasioned 
serious inconvenience. Tlfe book, like the early volumes of York Deeds, is to be 
published under the sanction and supervision of the Maine Historical Society, but 
the reputation of Mr. Sargent as an expert in these matters, is a sufficient guaranty 
of its accuracy, and the co-operation of Messrs, Thurston & Co. ensures careful 
and correct printing. The last Legislature showed its appreciation of the under- 
taking by voting to take 200 copies of the work. Subscribers in advance will be 
first served, and the general market will be supplied afterward, if at all. The 
pages are not stereotyped, and there will be no second edition.

GOV. WILLIAM G. CROSBY. 




BY JOSEPH WILLIAMSON. 

In the Republican Journal. 

OVERNOR CROSBY was born in Belfast, on the 
tenth of September, 1805. His father, Hon. William 
Crosby, generally known as Judge Crosby, was an emi- 
nent lawyer, who resided in Belfast from 1802, until his death fifty 
years after. His mother closed her long and useful life in 1877, at 
the advanced age of ninety-three, being with a single exception, the 
oldest person in town. Both were natives of Billerica, Massachu- 
setts, where the ancestors of Judge Crosby settled soon after 
arriving from England in 1635. 

After completing his preparatory studies at Belfast Academy, 
under the instruction of Ralph Cushman and Rev. William Froth- 
ingham, young Crosby entered Bowdoin College in 18 19, being 
then in his fourteenth year. That institution was then in its 
infancy, the first class having taken their degrees only thirteen 
years before. The whole number of students during his college 
course hardly exceeded one hundred. Among his classmates were 
46 



154 Mcoine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

William Pitt Fessenden, John Otis, and Luther V. Bell. The roll of 
his other contemporaries contains the names of Hawthorne, Long- 
fellow, Franklin Pierce, Chief Justice Appleton, Prof. William 
Smyth, Prof. Stowe, Senator James W. Bradbury, George B. 
Cheever, Sargent S. Prentiss, John S. C. Abbott, and others, 
who have acquired more than local distinction. He graduated on 
the third of September, 1823, a few days before he was eighteen 
years old, being the first person born in Belfast who ever received 
a college education. 

Mr. Crosby's commencement part was a poem on " The Enthusi- 
asm of Genius." The whispering pines of Brunswick seem to have 
infused a taste for poetry in many of the young men assembled 
there, and with him, continued after he left the scene of inspiration. 
He frequently contributed poetical pieces for the newspapers, two 
of which were afterward reproduced in a volume entitled " Bowdoin 
Poets," printed some forty years since. His ode at the commem- 
oration of Adams and Jefferson, in 1826, and a poem delivered 
before the Belfast Lyceum five years later indicated merit and 
promise. Many of his college associates believed that the Muses 
had been lavish in their gifts to him, and when relinquished for the 
stern arithmetic of life, could apply the words of Pope : " How 
sweet an Ovid was in Murray lost." After completing a course of 
legal studies with his father, he practiced law in Boston for two 
ye?,rs. Here he formed the acquaintance of Col. Charles G. 
Greene, afterwards well known as the editor of the Boston Post, 
and his brother, the late Nathaniel Greene, N. P. Willis, and other 
young men, whose literary tastes assimilated with his own. Many 
of these friendships were of life-long duration. In 1828, he re- 
turned to Belfast, and became permanently established there. 
From 1836 to 1849, he was in partnership with Hiram O. Alden, 
Esq. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 155 

Mr. Crosby was married in 1831 to Miss Ann M. Patterson, 
daughter of Capt. Robert Patterson, 4th, a son of one of the first 
settlers of Belfast. Their children, who survived infancy, were 
Anne M., married Richard Chenery; Sarah F., married John 
Hitchcock, of Boston ; William, who resides in Belfast ; George, 
who died February 17, 1878, aged 38; Horace, who is in business 
at McKeesport, Pa., and Frederick, who was killed by an accident 
at Syracuse, N. Y., August 21, 1878, aged 30. He looked forward 
to the pleasure of observing the fiftieth anniversary of his marriage, 
which occurred in October following his death, by a golden wed- 
ding, to celebrate the honors of a delightful home, and of a true, 
happy union, when the first affections would be renewed in the 
group of grandchildren around the family hearthstone, but alas ! 
that occasion he was never to see. 

In politics Governor Crosby was always a Whig. He believed 
that party to be the purest and most patriotic of any political 
organization that existed in our country. Contrary to his own 
wishes, he was the Whig candidate for Congress from the Waldo 
and Kennebec district in 1838; an honor which he declined in 
1840. During the latter year he participated actively in the Presi- 
dential campaign, and night after night his voice was effectively 
heard in behalf of " Harrison and Reform." He was a delegate to 
the national convention in 1844, which nominated Henry Clay, and 
one of his most ardent supporters. Two years later, although the 
State was in the hands of his political opponents, he was chosen 
secretary of the board of education, a department which had just 
been established, with a view to remedy existing defects in our 
common school system. To the duties of this position he zealously 
devoted himself for three years, visiting all parts of Maine, and 
lecturing in the principal towns. During a portion of his official 



156 Maine Historical and Ge^iealogicai Recorder, 

term, he edited the "Common School Advocate," a quarto semi- 
monthly newspaper, published in Belfast. His reports were widely 
circulated, and added to his reputation. To their recommendations 
we are indebted for many of the best features of our schools. 

In 1850, Mr. Crosby was unanimously nominated for Governor 
by a large Whig convention, and received a much greater vote than 
had been given to any Whig candidate since the election of Gov- 
ernor Kent, ten years before. He received a second nomination in 
1852, and although Belfast was then a strong Democratic town, his 
fellow citizens honored him by a majority of over two hundred ; 
agitation of the Maine Law, and the Free Soil element had 
divided the Democratic party, and there was no choice by the 
people. After a protracted contest in the Legislature, he was 
chosen over Governor Hubbard, the regular Democratic nominee, 
and Anson G. Chandler, who represented the Anti-Maine Law 
division. His election was repeated by the Legislature of 1854. 
During these two years, his constitutional advisers, as well as many 
members of the Senate and House, were men of ability and of 
public confidence. In the Council were Franklin Smith, Amos M. 
Roberts, Albert Pilsbury, H. H. Johnson, Theodore C. Woodman, 
and Samuel P. Shaw ; while the legislature contained George M. 
Chase, Shepard Cary, William P. Fessenden, Artemas Libbey, 
Henry W. Paine, Freeman H. Morse, John B. Hill, Geo. P. Sewall, 
Alfred W. Johnson, and Lot M. Morrill. His messages and 
addresses were able, practical and acceptable, and his various 
appointments to office were judicious and satisfactory. 

Upon the disruption of the Whig party in 1856, Gov. Crosby 
acted with the Democrats, although taking no prominent position 
in the political arena. He was a delegate to the National Union 
Convention held in Philadelphia in 1866, which had for its object 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 157 

the inauguration of a party to sustain the President in opposition 
to that of the majority of Congress. The same year he was ap- 
pointed Collector of Customs for his District. This was the last 
public position that he held. 

He received the degree of Master of Arts from Bowdoin College 
in 1826, and the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws in 1870. For 
several years he was connected with the government of that institu- 
tion, and always cherished for his Alma Mater a warm interest and 
regard. He was a member of the Maine Historical Society from 
1846 to the time of his death. He became a Mason in 1844, by 
joining the Phoenix Lodge, of which he was afterwards Master. 
He was also a Royal Arch Mason, and the first junior warden of 
Timothy Chase Lodge. Of the last named Lodge he was Master 
in 1868 and 1869. 

After leaving the gubernatorial chair, Governor Crosby resided 
for a few years in Boston, where he was engaged in literary pur- 
suits. He returned to Belfast in 1859, and resumed the practice of 
law, which he continued until 1870. He had been in professional 
life for nearly forty years, during which time his name was synony- 
mous with probity, integrity and uniform fairness. He appeared at 
the bar rather as a defender of oppressed truth and justice, than as 
the indiscriminate agent of any person who might require the ser- 
vices of eminent legal talent. He was such an advocate as Lord 
Campbell describes in his memoir of Erskine, — an advocate 
inspired by a generous love of fame and desirous of honorably 
assisting in the administration of justice by obtaining redress for 
the injured and defending the innocent, one who has studied liber- 
ally the science of jurisprudence and stored his mind and refined 
his taste by a generous acquaintance with elegant literature, one 
who had an intuitive insight into human character and into the 



158 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

workings of human passion, and was able by his power of persua- 
sion to give the best chances of success to every cHent whom he 
represented in every variety of pubhc causes. Always courteous 
in his demeanor, he never forgot or refused the claims of the 
younger members of the profession to sympathy and aid. Many a 
young man will remember how he was encouraged by his cheering 
words and helping hand. 

In most of the educational, literary and charitable undertakings 
of the day, he took a prominent part. He was long a member of 
the Unitarian church, and until prevented by infirmity was a con- 
stant attendant upon public worship. Upon retiring from active 
business, the remainder of his life was passed in the enjoyments of 
friendship and his favorite studies. He continued to maintain an 
interest in all that concerned his fellow citizens, and was occasion- 
ally induced to leave his seclusion and contribute to their gratifica- 
tion. The last time that he appeared before them was in the 
winter of 1877, when he delivered one of the lectures of a popular 
course. In 1874-5, he paid a graceful tribute to his native city by 
preparing for the Republican Journal a series of fifty-two papers 
entitled "The Annals of Belfast for Half a Century, from 1805 to 
1855, by an Old Settler." They gave a most pleasing, interesting 
and frequently humorous account of men and things there, derived 
partly from recollection, and constitute a valuable history of that 
period. 

Governor Crosby partook of the opinion of Bacon, that a "garden 
is the purest of human pleasures, and the greatest refreshment to 
the spirits of man." The cultivation of his grounds and the ripen- 
ing of their fruits were always to him sources of untiring recreation. 
Like most men in whom the poetic temperament is developed, he 
had an ardent love for nature in all her aspects. He loved the 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 159 

woods, the streams, the lakes and their associations with a longing 
that nothing could satisfy save a visit to his congenial haunts. The 
lakeside cottage to which he frequently resorted with a few cher- 
ished friends, was constantly beckoning him, and that was a happy 
day on which he could lay aside his law books for the fishing rod. 
For him there was no sweeter music than the low plash of the 
waves on the beach at his camp door. But though he fled from 
professional and ofHcial cares, he could not always avoid them. 

On one occasion while the Governor was casting his line in the 
waters of his favorite lake, a boat put off from the distant shore, 
bearing a stranger. He had come to learn whether the Governor 
would so construe the laws as to deliver up the stranger on demand 
of those in another state who sought his imprisonment. The Gov- 
ernor in his slouched hat and fishing coat, sat on a thwart, examined 
the papers, and having sent the inquirer away with a lighter heart 
proceeded to catch his supper of pickerel and perch. 

As he loved the woods, so he loved all things which made their 
homes therein. He would watch for hours the timid animal which 
crept from its covert to make shy acquaintance with man. He held 
with Coleridge that 

" He prayeth best who loveth best 
All things both great and small." 

A family of squirrels that made their home in a tree that shaded 
the fishing camp became so tame that they used to climb to his 
knee and eat morsels from his hand. The Governor's indignation 
was very great to find one day that marauding boys had visited the 
spot, and that his confiding pets were all slain. 

The often expressed wish of Governor Crosby that his breath 
might be surrendered in the room where it was first given, was not 



160 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

permitted to him. But in another apartment of the home of his 
birth, youth and mature manhood ; — in his library, among those 
mute companions which in joy and, in sorrow, in health and in sick- 
ness, had ever been a pleasure, a comfort and a strength, and sur- 
rounded by sorrowing friends, his calm and well rounded life passed 
painlessly away. 

Governor Crosby was descended from Simon^ Crosby and his 
wife Ann, who came from Lancashire, England, in 1639, and settled 
in Cambridge, Mass. He died in 1639, leaving three sons: Thom- 
as, Simon and Joseph.

174 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 



GOV. ROBERT PINCKNEY DUNLAP. 



BY M. F. KING. 




Contimied from Page j6. 

HE Democratic State Convention for this year was held 
at Augusta, June 26th, and was fully attended. On the 
first ballot Mr. Dunlap received 185 of the 271 votes 
cast. The resolutions approving the nomination and promising 
support, developed some opposition. The resolves were however 
carried with but three dissenting votes. The Eastern Argus two 
days later, speaking of the Convention, says : " The selection of 
Mr. Dunlap as the candidate of the Democratic party for the 
office of Governor will, we feel confident, afford not only general 
satisfaction, but will receive the willing applause of the great body 
of the people. In his politics, Mr. Dunlap is open and above dis- 
guise; straight-forward and unhesitating. His friends can confide 
in him for they know always where to find him. His political 
opponents will respect him for they know he is always above 
duplicity." 

As Governor, Mr. Dunlap was exceedingly popular and was 
three times re-elected by increased majorities. The graceful dic- 
tum and excellent spirit of his proclamations for fast and thanks- 
giving attracted favorable notice far beyond the limits of the State. 
His messages to the Legislature are not lengthy, but show an 
intimate acquaintance with the resources of the State, a thorough 
knowledge of its wants and a proper appreciation of the duties of 
those intrusted with making its appropriations and laws. The 
following extracts indicate his anxiety for the welfare of the State 
and the beneficence of his intent. After commending the arrange-

ment which had been made for the benefit of the deaf and dumb, 
he says, " We have passed by others, who have no less claim to be 
included among the subjects for public liberality, I allude to the 
unfortunate insane, many of whom are in condition that makes the 
strongest appeal to our sympathy, and might, I apprehend, derive 
the highest benefit from the advantages which an Insane Hospital 
would afford, I submit therefore, for your consideration whether it 
would not comport with the humane character of our citizens, and 
at the same time reflect honor upon us as a State, to make some 
suitable provision for their relief." The appeal was effective ; an 
appropriation was made at that session, which, together with gener- 
ous private contributions, resulted in establishing at Augusta, that 
most necessary of our public institutions. 

On the subject of Agriculture, he says: " It must at all periods 
present prominent claims upon the favorable consideration of the 
legislative department of government. Agriculture lies at the 
foundation of all national wealth and strength ; it is the parent of 
manufacture, the nurse of commerce, and the staff upon which all 
the arts and sciences lean for support." 

Of internal improvements, he says: " I am persuaded that there 
is very little danger of affording too much encouragement to the 
improvement to the dormant resources of the State." Upon his 
recommendation our first scientific survey was made. 

Of prisoners: "When from any cause we exclude a fellow-citizen 
from society, his right to intellectual and moral instruction remains 
unimpaired. The reform of an offender is among the primary 
objects of his confinement and should hold a conspicuous place 
among the regulations of the institutions." 

On the condition of the State Prison : " With all these improve- 
ments it cannot be doubted that the buildings are highly unsuitable 



176 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

for the proper purposes of a penitentiary. They seem to have 
been constructed with a view to inflict the greatest amount of 
punishment in the shortest time and at the least expense." 

In 1837, the Northeastern Boundary question was greatly exercis- 
ing the public mind, and on this subject he says: "Our political sys- 
tem has lodged in the first instance the power and the duty of pro- 
tection with the Federal Government, To that Government we 
have appealed, but relief has not come. Our lands are sequestered, 
our sovereignty is insulted, and our injured citizens are unre- 
dressed. In this state of things, is it not due to our own self 
.respect, as well as to the cause of justice, that the State of Maine 
should insist on being immediately placed by the Government of 
the United States, into the possession of the invaluable rights from 
which she has been so long excluded." 

Pauperism : " An examination into the extent of pauperism in 
our State will be sufficient to demonstrate the propriety of some 
legislative action upon the subject, of a precautionary character at 
least. While ample provisions should be made for all cases of real 
indigence, great vigilance should be exercised, to guard against 
offering inducements either to the dissolute or idle, to prefer a 
state of dependence upon public charity to one of honorable indus- 
try and self support." 

General education : " Much has heretofore been done by the 
State Government for the improvement of the rising generation, 
but it is the nature of this class of claims to increase with the 
increasing ability of our people and government to sustain them. 
Perhaps an undue proportion of the bounties of the State has 
heretofore been applied to the education of the male sex. I need 
not urge upon intelligent and reflecting minds, the importance, as 
well as the justice, of advancing at equal pace the cultivation of 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 177 

intellectual power in the two sexes. The progress of our youth in 
knowledge and virtue, as they approach maturity of years, greatly 
depends on the mental and moral habits formed in early life under 
the influence of females, to whose care our children are ordinarily 
committed during that important period when first impressions are 
imparted to the mind. As a matter of economy merely, female 
education is deservedly entitled to the most liberal provisions. But 
we should be behind the spirit and the lights of the age, if it were 
not so regarded by us for its own sake alone." 

In 1843, Gov. Dunlap was elected to represent his District in 
the 28th Congress. He served two terms ; during the 29th he was 
a member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs. It is evident that 
he was an industrious and pains-taking member, highly esteemed by 
his associates and conscientiously caring for the special interests of 
his constituents. 

In 1848-9 he was Collector of the Port of Portland; and was 
Postmaster of Brunswick from 1853 to 1857. 

He cherished a fond affection for his Alma Mater, and during 
many years was President of the Board of Overseers. 

Gov. Dunlap was a zealous Free Mason, admitted to its deepest 
mysteries and attaining its highest honors. In 18 16 he was ini- 
tiated by United Lodge at Topsham, and in 1818-19 and 20 was 
its Master, and three times elected Grand Master of Masons in 
Maine. He was the first resident of Maine to receive the degrees 
of the A. and A. S. Rite, and at the time of his death, was Lieu- 
tenant Grand Commander of the Supreme Council for the North- 
ern Jurisdiction, U. S. A. For three terms of three years each he 
presided over the General Grand Chapter of the United States. 
At its Convocation in Hartford, Conn., in 1856, he delivered an 
eloquent address which was published with the proceedings. At

this session a silver service was unanimously voted, " As a slight 
testimonial of the high regard and esteem entertained by the Royal 
Craft of the United States, for his labors of love in an order 
which he has devoted a long series of years and of which he is 
considered one of the brightest lights." 

The domestic relations of Gov. Dunlap were pleasant to a 
marked degree. His wife, to whom he was married October 20, 
1825, was Lydia, daughter of Abner Chapman of Beverly, Mass. 
She was born May 29, 1793, and died January 29, 1868. Their 
children, all born in Brunswick, were : 

^Charles Robert Pinckney, born Feb. 26, 1827; a physician, now residing in 

New York City, unmarried. 
^Edward Augustus, born Aug. 13, 1828; a farmer and business man, occupies 

the paternal estate. He has been twice married : first to Abbie Patterson, 

and second to Agnes Conway Towson. 

3 Annie Eliza, born June 21, 1831 ; the widow of A. G. Manson, now residing in 

St. Paul, Minn. 

4 Henry, born Nov. 16, 1834; in Law Division of the Treasury Department at 

Washington ; married in 1876, with Mary LeCompte of Maryland. 

Gov. Dunlap died at his home in Brunswick, October 20, 1859, 
at half-past two o'clock in the afternoon, of typhoid fever, believed 
to have been contracted during a recent visit to Chicago, where he 
had been to attend a convention of the Masons. 

The Portland Advertiser, always his political opponent, referring 
to his death, after enumerating his many honors, says : " He was 
mainly distinguished as a presiding ofHcer, for which he was emi- 
nently qualified, and enjoyed a large measure of success. In early 
life he was a very strong partizan, which was the chief source of 
his strength. In private, he was a man of purity of life, and 
enjoyed the good will of all." 

His funeral was more largely attended than any which had ever 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 179 

occurred in the town. In the church where he was wont to wor- 
ship, a great congregation was gathered. His pastor, Rev. Dr. 
Adams, paid an affecting tribute to the memory of the man who 
had been so long a member and a Deacon of his church. In his 
discourse he said : " Missed will he be. O, how sadly, more a 
thousand times than tongue can tell, in his own home. Missed he 
must be in the gatherings of the ancient and honorable fraternity 
to which he belonged, to which he was so much attached and of 
which, I may be permitted to say, he was an ornament. And how 
shall we miss him in our little circles of Christian communion and 
prayer. He did not often address to us the word of exhortation. 
He did not often, unrequested, open his lips to pray with us. But 
his bodily presence was a tower of strength; the humility, the 
earnestness, the devotion, that were depicted on his countenance, 
these were exhortation, these were prayers. When we invited him 
to lead our devotions, he never declined, never seemed unprepared, 
or as if taken by surprise, and his prayers have been among the 
most valuable means of grace which we have enjoyed. Our 
brother's love for the prayer-meeting distinguished the whole of 
his Christian life. To this he was inclined by the social qualities 
and tender susceptibilities of his nature, as well as by his devout 
feelings. He was always present, always interested. While a 
member of Congress, he belonged to a little circle, composed of 
men of all political parties, who meet weekly or oftener for social 
devotions, and were bound together by the strong bonds of Chris- 
tian affection. Just before he started on his late visit to Illinois, he 
met with a little simple hymn, entitled ' The need of Jesus.' It 
interested him greatly ; he carried it in his pocket out and back, 
reading it often. I will read it to you and so close. May its senti- 
ments be yours and mine, living and dying." 



180 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

He was buried by the Free Masons who had assembled in great 
numbers to accompany his corpse to the place of interment and 
sorrowfully perform their last rites for the dead. Their venerable 
Grand Chaplain, Rev. Cyril Pearl, with streaming eyes and glow- 
ing words, paid an affecting and eloquent tribute to his memory. 
From his remarks I select the following : 

" Companion Dunlap was a Christian. His early moral sympa- 
thies and generous impulses were not mistaken for spiritual religion. 
Early embracing the principles of our Order, he never made his ma- 
sonic zeal and devotion a substitute for a living faith. When hon- 
ors and official trusts clustered round him and words of flattery fell 
upon his ear, there was still a thirsting spirit, ever unsatisfied, till 
he knelt at the feet of his Saviour and drank of that living water 
which springs up into life eternal. It was in the midst of his 
official duties as Governor of Maine, that he bowed in reverence 
before the King of Kings, and knelt at the cross of his Saviour, as 
he had previously knelt at the altar of Knighthood. From that 
day his highest character was that of a Christian. His undying, 
ever increasing love for the Masonic Institution was fed from the 
celestial fountain. With his whole soul he sought illumination 
from the Great Light in Masonry, the light of the world. This 
was the grand secret of that thrilling eloquence which never failed 
to greet us, when rising in the East to give Masonic counsel. His 
delight in Masonry and Masonic Convocations arose from his deep 
conviction that its principles were favorable to human progress and 
elevation, favorable to the spirit of fraternity, the brotherhood of 
man, and thus favoring and hastening the reign of peace, when one 
song shall employ all nations and Emanuel shall reign King of 
Nations, as he is the King of Saints." 

Over his grave has been erected a beautiful granite monument, 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 181 

six feet square at the base, and about ten feet in height. Three 
sides are paneled with marble slabs, severally devoted to family, 
Masonic and State inscriptions. That on the family panel reads : 

DEAREST TO THE NEAREST; 

BEST TO THEM WHO KNEW HIM BEST. 

IN CHRIST HERE; WITH CHRIST FOREVER. 

Died Oct. 20, i8^g, ^. 65". 

Inscribed by wife and children in loving 

and reverent rememberance.

TO THE MEMORY OF 

ROBERT PINCKNEY DUNLAP, 

WHO WAS THREE TIMES GRAND MASTER 

OF THE GRAND LODGE OF MAINE, AND FILLED THE 

HIGHEST PLACES IN THE MASONIC FRATERNITY OF THE STATE AND THE UNITED STATES. 

This monument is erected by the Free Masons of the State of Maine. 
They knew his virtues. They honor his memory. 

The State inscription, prepared by a commission, consisting of 
Hon. Josiah H. Drummond, Hon. Samuel Blake and Hon. Josiah 
Merrow, appointed by the Legislature, is 

ROBERT p. DUNLAP 
was Governor of Maine from 1834 to 1838. He had been 
Representative, Senator, and twice President of the 
Senate in the State Legislature ; and Executive Counsellor, 
and was afterward Representative in Congress and Col- 
lector of the Port of Portland. He honored every posi- 
tion he was called to fill by an able and faithful discharge 
of its duties. The State gives to his memory the tribute 
of respect by inscribing upon this tablet its grateful 
resolution of his many virtues and its high appreciation 
of his public services. 

The pedestal is surmounted with a bust of Gov. Dunlap in 

[marble, the work of Mr. Frank Simmons. It is about one and one- 

lalf life size, attracts much notice in the prominent position it 

jholds in the Brunswick cemetery, and is creditable to the genius 

of the artist.

Cotitinued from Page 132. 

QUIRE " OAKMAN, as he was known, was prominent 
in town affairs, was selectman from 1784 to 1809, town 
treasurer, 1783, 1784, 1786 and 1787, also from 1803 to 
1809. He represented the town in the General Court, which met 
at Boston, 1781, 1800, 1803 and 1804. He took much interest in 
Revolutionary matters. His name is on the petition of the Com- 
mittee of Safety, 13 June, 1775. He enjoyed a good prosperity 
until the breaking out of the War of 181 2, which to him, as well 
as others, was disastrous to his shipping interests. Nearly all his 
vessels being on the high seas were captured by the enemy. A 
great loss to him was the ship "Superb,"(?) which was chased up the 
Sheepscot River, and run ashore at Squam Island, now Westport, 
where the crew deserted her. The wreck was seen years after by 
a descendant, the timbers just visible at high water mark. Another 
vessel building at Pittston and nearly completed, owned in part by 
Francis Flitner, went to ruin on the stocks. 

In the old burying-yard, where about one hundred of Pittston's 
early settlers were interred, the only remaining headstones are 
those which mark the following graves and read as follows :

the aid of two sisters, to gather some of the tea thrown from the ship as it

JOHN CROWNE — DRAMATIST AND POET. 




BY DR. J. S. H. FOGG. ' 

OUBTLESS few readers of this Magazine are aware 
that one of the distinguished dramatists and poets of the 
1 7th century was, probably, a native of the Province of 
Maine, and passed the early years of his life there — even to early 
manhood. 

Having become interested in the history of this man, by reason 
of papers relating to him, recently coming into my hands, I have 
tried to find some account of his birth ^ — the date and locality, and 
of his early life, but my researches have been rewarded with little 
success. Though the English biographical dictionaries make 
allusion to him with only a few lines, yet, in his time, he was a man 
of power and influence. He became a favorite at the Court of 
Charles H. At the solicitation of the Earl of Rochester, when 
Dryden, the Poet Laureate had incurred his displeasure, the king 
employed him to write " The Masque of Calypso " to be performed 
before the Court. "Nothing," says Sir Walter Scott, "could be 
more galling towards Dryden, a part of whose duty, as Poet 
Laureate, was to compose the pieces designed for such occasions." 
The diaries of Pepys and Evelyn allude to the performance of this 
play. His comedy, "Sir Courtly Nice," was patronized by the 
King, who promised to befriend him. But the King died on the 
very day on which the piece had its final rehearsal, an event which 
ruined Crowne. 

Watt enumerates eighteen plays written and published by 
Crowne, many of which passed through several editions. Two or 
three poems were also written by him. It was no small distinction 
that he was to some extent the rival of Dryden. All authorities 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 189 

seem to agree in the statement that he was the son of a dissenting 
clergyman, and was born in Nova Scotia. I am sure that his father 
was not a dissenting minister, and equally sure that Maine, and not 
Nova Scotia, was his birth-place. He was born about 1640, as his 
deposition shows, and, at the age of twenty, was living in the Prov- 
ince of Maine. His father was Col. William Crowne, who was 
associated with Sir Thomas Temple in claims in Nova Scotia and 
Maine. Col. Crowne was a freeman in Maine in 1660, and was in 
Boston at the restoration of Charles H. He visited Go£f and Whal- 
ley when they arrived in Boston. On returning to England, in 
1 66 1, he rendered important service to the Massachusetts Colony. 
In 1662 Col. Crowne had a grant of 500 acres of land from the 
Massachusetts Government, " at a place near the cold spring, near 
unto the road which leadeth from Sudbury to Connecticutt," em- 
bracing the territory now comprised in the township of Ashland, 
" as an acknowledgement of his great pains in behalf of this coun- 
try, when he was in England." In Chalmers Biographical Diction- 
ary, in a note, it is stated, that the father of John Crowne 
accompanied the Earl of Arundel to Vienna, and published " a 
relation of his Lordships travels &:c., 4to, 1637:" and who after 
holding an office in the Heraldic College, went with his family to 
one of the plantations, and died there. 

The following papers relate to a demand and suit by Col. 
Crowne against Rev. Robert Jordan, who was noted for his fre- 
quent differences with the early settlers of Maine. The subject of 
these papers is of no importance, but the facts they develop in 
relation to the parentage of our dramatist, and the historical 
information they contain, may be sufficient excuse for occupying so 
much space in giving them publicity. 

John Croune aged about twenty yeares testifieth & saith. That

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, MAINE. 
SETTLEMENT OF THE TOWNSHIPS. 



Rev. G. M. Bodge, East Boston, Mass. 




Contimied from Page 104. 
T A MEETING of the Proprietors April i6th, 1741, It was voted to 
"put the Meeting-House in suitable condition for the Inhabitants to 
worship in and to procure a Preacher according to the former vote 
June 5, 1740." 

In the Spring freshets, the " Great Bridge " above Sacarappa Falls, (nearly on 
the supposed line between their township and Falmouth), which the Proprietors 
had built at heavy expense, was damaged somewhat by floating ice and logs, and as 
now constructed was threatened with destruction; At the meeting Aug. 24, 1741, 
steps were taken to secure it by necessary alterations, and also to protect the 
Proprieters from constant expense thereafter. October 5, 1741, it was voted to 
pay Mr. Nicholas Hodge "forty-five shillings per Sabbath for every Sabbath he 
shall preach " to the inhabitants of the Township ; Mr. Hodge was at that time 
teaching school at Falmouth and probably preached for the people here at the new 



198 Maine Historical a7td Genealogical Recorder, 

township, occasionally, but I find no record of it; see later on. March 4th, 1741-2; 
At this meeting, Thomas Chute and William Mayberry, the only Proprietors who 
were also actual settlers, were chosen surveyors of highways ; and proposals were 
made for some one to erect and carry on a Grist-mill. During this year it appears 
that Rev. John Wight preached in the township some six months, and with such 
acceptance that at their Meeting March 3d, 1743 the Proprietors voted to offer him 
forty-five pounds out of their treasury for his settlement, and thirty pounds per 
annum. A call was forthwith extended to Mr. Wight and was accepted by him 
March 25th, 1743; His letter of acceptance is copied into the Proprietor's Book, 
and an account of that and his settlement and the articles of Agreement &c., will 
be given in the proper place. The Meeting House was found to be in a sad state 
of dilapidation and it was voted that it be repaired at once, a Pulpit, and suitable 
seats for the people be erected, and seven-pounds-ten-shillings was voted for Mr, 
Wight's ordination, which took place Dec. 14, 1743. The prospects of the new 
township now seemed very hopeful, but were soon darkened by the war between 
England and France which inevitably involved their respective colonies in America. 
Massachusetts, wisely foreseeing the danger to her frontier settlements in case of 
such a war, voted to appropriate ;^i28o, for forts and Block-Houses on the fron- 
tiers, and ^100 was assigned for the purpose of building a Fort at New Marble- 
head. This was built by the inhabitants at the expense of the Colony in the Spring 
of 1744, and a description and account of the same will be given in the chapters 
devoted to MiUtary Matters. July 30th, 1744. The Proprietors voted to pay for 
half a Barrel of Powder purchased by Mr. William Maybery, for the use of the 
Inhabitants, and also for two swivels for them, to be placed in the Block-House. 
For all this brave preparation there was great discouragement with the proprietors 
as with the settlers ; The latter were actually in a state of siege from the time of 
the beginning of hostilities in the Summer of 1745, for six years, and for the most 
of that time the families were shut up in the Block-House, and all improvement 
upon their farms, planting and harvesting &c., had to be carried on under a guard 
of soldiers ; their sufferings, for the lack of suitable food even, were long and 
severe. The men of the township were, most of them, in turns, put under pay as 
soldiers, and in this way the families managed to pull through without abandoning 
the settlement. In the meantime the Proprietors continued to meet and go through 
the forms of electing officers and levying taxes. In May, 1746, a meeting was 
called to take action upon an application from the Settlers, by the hand of Mr. 
Wight, asking liberty to pull down the Meeting-House and use the material, (solid 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 199 

hewn timber) in strengthening the Block-House, and especially since it was near to 
the same and might serve as a fortress, for the Indians, against them ; but the 
meeting failed for want of a quorum, and they were not able to get together 
another meeting until March 2d, 1748, when they chose a committee of the Pro- 
prietors as usual, and from the Settlers, Messrs. John Bodge, Abraham Anderson 
and Thomas Bolton as Surveyors of highways, the only " highway " as yet actually 
" swamped out " being the " main " road from the head of the home-lots to Sacca- 
rappa Falls. The next meeting of importance was held March 3, 1750, and Rev. 
John Wight's bill for his salary, due from the Proprietors, amounting to ;^435, i6s, 
4d, "Old Tenor," was acted upon and thought to be "extraordinary above his 
Contract; " and it was voted to pay ;^2oo, "if he would receive it in full satisfac- 
tion of his account," &c. Nothing of interest in the records again till April 26, 
1755, when a committee was appointed to repair to the township and take a full 
account of the state of Settlement, Roads, State of the Great Bridge, &c. For 
several years it had been voted to send a committee for this purpose but nobody 
went ; Now an additional duty was added, to look after the fish-ways that the 
Salmon might not be impeded in their season ; There is no evidence that this 
committee did act until 1759, with the result which already appears in the report 
above given. 

In the meantime in the interval of the cessation of hostilities from 175 1 to 1754 
the settlers had improved their time, and their farms and homes began to flourish 
and several new families were added in that time, while on the other hand, a severe 
blow had fallen upon them in the death of their Minister, Rev. John Wight, who 
died May 8th, 1753. But when in the Winter of 1754 and 5, War was again 
declared between France and England, the settlers once more made ready for the 
struggle, but after a year of privation and discouragement they laid their grievances 
and sad state before the General Court, appealing for some relief, particularly 
against the apathy of the Proprietors, in the following Petition. 

Province of the Massachusetts Bay. 

"To His Honor Spencer Phipps Esq., Lieut. Governor and Commander-in-Chief 
in and of our said Province, the Hon^^®, the Council and House of Representatives

difficulties in supporting the ministry among them, having themselves during the 
life of their Late Pastor Rev*^. Mr. John Wight deceased, been at one half the 
expense of his support notwithstanding it being a Wilderness Place, and under 
every Disadvantage almost imaginable. But since the Decease of Said Minister 
the difficulties have been greater than before having had no assistance at all from 
the Proprietors, by what means they have been a great part of the Time without 
any Preaching at all and when they at any time have had any it has been intirely 
at theire own cost and Charge, wh. by reason of their small number has amounted 
to twenty Pounds Old Tenor each settler for six months, nor had your petitioners 
ever any proper place to meet in to attend the publick worship and now none at all, 
altho they have petitioned the Prop""^ to build a Meeting-House and to settle a 
minister and have as often been refused ; And in case your Peti^^ can't have 
Redress in the matter they must be obliged to live like Heathen without the 
Gospell, or quit the Place. Whereas the Prop"^® of Narragansett No. 7 alias Gor- 
hamtown, (which lies contiguous with New Marblehead) have all along at their own 
cost & charge built and maintained a proper place for the Publick Worship, settled 
and supported a Minister and cleared Roads intirely at their own expense amount- 
ing to 10 pounds Old Tenor annually to each Right, and the whole Taxes on New 
Marblehead, has never since the settlement thereof (which is about 15 years) 
amounted to Sixty Pounds Old Tenor, on each Right altho said Rights are twice as 
bigg as the Gorham town Rights. The Settlers in Gorham town are in no case in 
any better circumstances than your Petitioners saving the Prop''^ supporting the 
Minister and paying all Taxes whereby they have flourished and increased to near 
three times in number to y'^ Petitioners, who, as their first Minister drew the Prop^^ 
Right, through the Town, have nothing to encourage a second and are continually 
decreasing in Number and must finally brake up. Your Petitioners imagine that 
their Settling in the Township and cultivating the Land has greatly inhansed the 
Value of the whole and thereby been of great Service to the Proprietors in General, 
and they are willing now to exert themselves to the utmost to maintain & support 
the Interest of the Place, and altho they have all along got their Bread in Jeopardy 
of their Lives, and frequently suffered Wounds Captivity and Death from the 
Indian Enemy yet would tarry and venture their Lives chearfully in Case the Pro- 
prietors would Settle a Minister among them & defray the publick charges, but they 
are deaf to all Intreaties. Wherefore your Petitioners are Obliged to resort to this 
Hon^''^ Court for Redress Humbly praying your Honours would please to Order the 
Proprietors to Setle and Support a Minister among them and defrey the publick

and the names of John Mayberry and Caleb Graffam, being on the paper sent up 
to the Council with the Petition, I judge that it was by these men that the Petition 
was taken to Boston ; The Council took action on Oct. 26th, 1756 and the Petition- 
ers were ordered to serve the Proprietors at Marblehead and elsewhere with a copy 
of the Petition. Further action was deferred until the defence of the Proprietors 
was received June 14th, 1757. 

And this is the answer of the Proprietors. 

Province of the Massachusetts Bay. 

To the Hon^^^ His Majestie's Council and House of Representatives of said 
Province, April y^ 8^^ i757- 
The Petition of the Grantees or Proprietors of the Township commonly called 

New Marblehead in the County of York, in answer to the Petition of Sundry of 
the Inhabitants of Said Township Dated May 25th, 1756. 
Humbly Sheweth 

That the complaint of s^ Inhabitants in s^ Petition is false and without cause. 
For that s^ Inhabitants (as such) were never charged with nor Demanded of, any 
part of the Charge toward the support or payment of any Minister employed or set- 
tled among them from the first to the death of the Rev. Mr. Wight. But the 
whole charge Respecting anything Relating to s^ Township was wholly laid on your 
Respondents, as Grantees or Proprietors, which s^^ Inhabitants " Greatfully acknowl- 
edged " (as they said) in a Petition to your Respondents Dated 13 of March 1756 
49 



202 Mame Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 



& signed by twenty-three of s*^ Inhabitants, (some of which were Grantees). And 
as to their complaint of their small numbers, It is wholly their own fault for several 
of them are under obligation to several of the Grantees to settle and fulfill the 
Condition of the Grant of this Hon^^® Court, and have not only obliged themselves 
to settle one Right each, but have undertaken to settle some two and some three, 
and having not settled a family on each Right according to their obligation, is the 
cause of the small numbers they complain of. And as to their complaint that they 
never had any publick place to meet in, to attend the Publick worship, and now 
none at all ; Your Respondents (as Grantees and Prop^^) in Compliance to the 
Conditions of their Grant did in the year 1740 Erect a suitable Meeting-House 
there, fitted for a further conveniency for more Inhabitants if need required. But 
after the War Broke out with the French and Indians, This Hon^^^ Court was 
pleased to send a Committee to the s^ Township and at the Charge of the Province 
did erect a Fort or Block-House for the security and Defence of the Inhabitants 
there. Which s^ Committee was pleased to build so near the s*^ Meeting-House 
(which was built of Hewn Timber fit for defence) That the said Inhabitants were 
apprehensive of Danger therefrom in case the Enemy should get Possession thereof 
and improve it as a fort for them to the annoyance of the Block-House (built by y"^ 
Hon'"^) On which occasion the Rev^^ Mr. Wight now deceased, in the name and at 
the desire of the Inhabitants (as he said) wrote to the Com*^® of your Respondents 
Desiring Liberty to pull down said Meeting-House and improve the Timber and 
all other Materials for the Enlargment of the said Fort or Block-House, and other 
Conveniences for the use of the Inhabitants, Promising that they would build 
another Meeting-House in case of want thereof at their own charge ; And accord- 
ingly the said House was taken down by the settlers before the Grantees or Prop""^ 
could be assembled to act thereon ; Whereby your Respondents acted nothing 
Relating to their Request or Desire & by this means only they are without a proper 
place to meet in as they complain. 

Notwithstanding your Respondents are always willing to bear their proportion- 
able Charge in Calling, Settling and Supporting a suitable Person to preach the 
Gospel among them Provided they as Inhabitants will agree with and Oblige them- 
selves to pay said Person, We the Nonresidents paying our part with them accord- 
ing to Our Several Interests, So far as is or shall be appropriated and laid out in 
particular by Butts and Bounds (although not improved) after the usual custom of 
Poles are Rated, according to law. But are not willing to pay anything for our Right 
in the Common and Undivided Lands, for that the Inhabitants have the whole ben- 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 203 

efit of it as also of the appropriated Land, not fenced nor improved, belonging to 
the Nonresidents which We humbly leave to your Honr^ Judgment and Direction. 

Your Respondents further Humbly Petition this Hon^^^ Court That you would be 
pleased, To informe yourselves of the Present Condition of the Settlement made 
on Said Township, Agreeable to the Conditions of the Grant made by this Hon^^® 
Court, and Confirm the said Grant to the Original Granttees and their Lawful! 
Representatives accordingly. 

And that Your Hon'^^ would be pleased to incorporate said Inhabitants into a 
Town or District, with all the powers and privileges thereof, that they may Act 
within themselves for the future as your Hon^^ in your great Wisdom shall see meet, 
and in Duty Bound your Humble Respondents and Pettitioners shall Ever Pray, 

Eben^ Stagey, "j in the Name and 
Nathan Bowen, V Behalf of the 
WiLL"^ Goodwin, j Prop"^ &c.

THE BUTLER FAMILY IN GEORGETOWN, NO. 2, 



% 



BY JOSIAH H. DRUMMOND. 




Y " Note" on page 65, of No. i, Vol. IV. of the Recorder, 
illustrates the danger of relying upon recollection in 
genealogical matters, for that note is both imperfect and 
erroneous. 

The will of Martha Butler, widow of the original William (Vol. 
Ill, p. 134), dated September 5, 1796, and admitted to probate May 
25, 1798, mentions her sons, William Butler and Thomas Butler, 
and her daughters, Sarah Butler (single woman), Mary Preble, wife 
of Joseph Preble of said town, Ann Drummond, wife of Elijah 
Drummond of said town, Martha Soper, wife of Samuel Soper, and 
Abigail White, widow of John White, late of Georgetown, deceased." 

William Butler had no daughter Mary ; and we find that Joseph 
Preble and Mary Hodgkinson were published in Georgetown, June 
21, 1756. So the Mary Preble mentioned in the will was undoubt- 
edly the Mary Hodgkinson mentioned in the family record (Vol. 
Ill, p. 134), and presumably the daughter of Mrs. Butler, by a 
former husband. 

1. Ann Butler married Elijah Drummond^ (Patrick^), and they had two sons 

and four daughters. The sons both died unmarried. The oldest daughter 
Martha married her cousin, James Williams ; Margaret married Simeon 
Davis; Sarah married Henry Cutting, and Mary married, ist, Elijah 
Williams, and 2d Henry Work. The descendants^f these daughters 
are very numerous in Phipsburg and West Bath. I have collected the 
statistics of the most of them. 

2. Martha Butler married Samuel Soper, or Sopper. The Georgetown records 

do not give any family, but merely that " Samuel Soaper " died Oct. 8, 
1807, and Martha, his wife, died Aug. 13, 1823. 

3. William Butler jr. married August 12, 1787, Martha Snipe (and not Fisher, 

as stated in my note). 
*No. I, Vol. Ill, p. 134- 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 227 

Abigail Butler married, May 15, 1792, Capt John White, his third wife. 

According to the town record they had one son, William Butler White, b. 

Sept. 22, 1793. 
Thomas Butler married, July 8, 1779, Margaret Rogers. They had nine 

children, the youngest of whom is still living. In an account of the 

Rogers family, which I hope to have ready soon, I give this family.

of a few New England teachers who spent a 
large portion of their lives in preparing our 
children and youth for lives of prosperity and 
usefulness, whose names deserve to be held in 
grateful and perpetual remembrance. He has 
added also the names of many of the scholars 
who attended Mr. Tileston's school from 1761 to 
1765. This little book would interest many of 
our readers.

Utica, N. Y., Nov. 6, 1886. 

Dear Sir : I send you herewith the copy of a 
letter dated Jan. 7th, 1869, ^'^^ written by 
Quintius Sella, of Turin, Italy, to Prof. Dana, of 
Yale College, New Haven, Conn. This com- 
munication, I am informed by one of the family, 
who is in possession of the original, has never 
been in print, and it has occurred to me that 
you might like it for your Recorder. 
Truly yours, 

Chas. W. Darling, 

Cor. Sec. 
'' My Dear Sir : 

It is most probable, if not quite sure, that 
Italy has the right of claiming you as one of her 
illustrious offspring. The birthplace of the 
Dana's is in ' Vasco,' a village near the town of 
Mondovi. There are still many families by the 
name of Dana in that vicinity. During the 
years 1861 and 1869 the town of Monde vi, and 
the adjacent villages, rebelled against the Dukes 
of Savoy, in opposition to the salt tax, and the 
inhabitants were punished with great severity. 
Entire villages were razed to the ground, and 
many families were driven away. The Dana family 
were of the number, and the heirs of Giacomo 
Dana were forbidden to rebuild two houses de- 
stroyed by the soldiers of the Duke of Savoy in 
the year 1699. Cassimer Dana, lately Professor of 
Literature in the University of Turin, informs 
me that his father, born in a house near to that 
of the above mentioned Giacomo, told him, 
many times, that in the trouble about the salt 
tax one of the Danas had fled to Genoa. It is 
also probable that this Giacomo Dana went to 
America in the beginning of the last century,and 
was the originator of the family to which you 
belong. Yours truly, 

(Signed) Quintius Sell."

GENERAL LAFAYETTE IN MAINE. • 




ENERAL LAFAYETTE visited this country four times. 
He landed first in South Carolina, April 24, 1777, was 
commissioned as Major-General in the United States 
Army, July 31, the same year. He returned to France, embarking 
from Boston in June, 1779. He re-crossed the Atlantic, landing in 
Boston, May 11, 1780, returning to his home at the close of the 
campaign. In 1784, at the invitation of Washington, he again 
visited the United States, landing at New York, August 4, but 
returned to France the following December. 

President Monroe, by a resolution of Congress, invited LaFay- 
ette once more to this country. It was not until the General's 
fourth and last visit that he came east of Massachusetts, and at this 
time, accompanied by his son, George Washington, and another 
member of his family, Mons La Vasseur, he visited each of the 
twenty-four states and many of the principal cities. Although he 
arrived on this occasion at New York, August 15, 1824, he did not 
reach the State of Maine until nearly a year later. LaFayette, on 
his way to Maine, passed the night of June 23, 18 15, in Dover, 
N. H. On the evening of that day, a committee of citizens of 
South Berwick waited on him and invited him to breakfast with 
51 



230 Mai7te Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

them the next morning, which invitation he accepted. At 8 o'clock 
on the morning of the 24th he arrived at the bridge which is on 
the boundary Hne of the States, to which place he was escorted by 
a Committee of the New Hampshire Legislature, and given in 
charge of Colonels Dunlap and Emery, the Aids of Governor 
Parris. On the line of the State, under a civic arch of evergreens 
festooned with oak leaves and adorned with roses. Colonel Dunlap, 
in an appropriate address welcomed him to the State of Maine, to 
which the General made a suitable reply. He then entered the 
carriage with Colonel Dunlap and rode uncovered to Mrs. Frost's 
hotel. The street for nearly the whole distance was lined with 
young ladies on one side, and lads on the other, who as he passed, 
retained their stations and cheered him with " Welcome LaFayetter 
Similar arches were erected over the street near the hotel, and 
over its entrance. From the balcony in the presence of a large 
concourse of people, the Hon. Benjamin Greene, as chairman of 
the Selectmen of South Berwick, addressed him with words of 
warmest welcome to the town, and to the State of Maine; to which 
the General made reply. Then followed introductions to many 
people, all of whom he took by the hand and seemed not the least 
impatient in receiving the greetings of the lowest citizen, or the 
smallest child. He then entered a hall elegantly decorated for the 
occasion where he breakfasted ; after which he called on Mrs. 
Gushing with whom he was intimately acquainted during the Rev- 
olutionary War. From thence he entered his carriage and pro- 
ceeded toward Portland. He was received on his entry into Wells 
by Mr. Horace Porter, chief marshal of the day, and the citizens of 
that village, who had thrown two beautiful arches across the street 
through which he passed and greeted him with loud huzzas of wel- 
.come. From Wells, he was conducted to the town of Kennebunk, 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 231 

where he was met by a cavalcade of gentlemen of this village and 
the neighboring towns, headed by General Elisha Allen of Sanford, 
who joined the general escort. When the procession arrived 
within a mile of the village, the cannon under the direction of Major 
Osborn and Captain Littlefield commenced firing a national salute, 
the bells ringing at the same time. He was conducted through 
the town amidst the huzzas and joyous greeting of the citizens, 
giving every person an opportunity of seeing him, by forming on 
each side of the street from the bridge to the church, where the 
cavalcade wheeled and returned to Towle's Hotel, when the Gen- 
eral was introduced to the Committee of Arrangements by the 
Governor's Aids, and was addressed by Dr. Samuel Emerson, the 
chairman, in appropriate terms, to which the General replied with 
much affection and feeling. Partaking of the same spirit so uni- 
versally manifested throughout the United States on the visit of 
LaFayette, the citizens of Saco and Biddeford met him at 4.30 
o'clock, P.M. on the same day (Friday, 24th), and to them who were 
united in their Committee of Arrangements for the occasion, he 
was announced as the " Nation's Guest," by Colonel Emery, one of 
the Governor's Aids. The General was addressed by Ether Shep- 
ley, Esquire, chairman of the Committee, and he replied in his 
usual happy manner. He was then escorted to Cleaves' Hotel in 
Saco, by a numerous cavalcade under the direction of Colonel 
George Thacher, Chief Marshal of the day, and his Aids. The 
procession proceeded through the principal streets of the towns, — 
across the bridge over the Saco was erected an elegant arch bear- 
ing the motto, ^'Welcome LaFayette',' and on one column, ''Yorktown 
17-ig Oct. 1^8 1,'' and on the other, ''Versailles 5-6, Oct. //c^p," 
while the sides of the bridge were tastefully decorated with ever- 
greens. Across the second bridge at the foot of Cutts' Island, was 



232 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

also erected another arch on which was the following line taken from 
a French play and applied in the original to LaFayette, — 'y admire 
La prudence, et J' aime son courage!' Near the stone building in 
Main street, another elegant arch was thrown across bearing the 
following inscription, ''Then I mill equip one myself',' at the sight of 
which the General was visibly affected. At one point in the pro- 
cession he was greeted with the simple and affectionate welcome of 
the school children of both towns, the girls dressed in white and 
the boys wearing a badge on which was inscribed, ''Welcome LaFay- 
etter The General appeared much pleased and received their salu- 
tations with evident emotion. The sides of the streets were 
thronged with citizens anxious to testify their joy and gratitude by 
loud and repeated huzzas. At the hotel a great number of gentle- 
men were introduced, among them many revolutionary soldiers, and 
some who belonged to the General's Light Infantry. This scene 
was interesting beyond description. It was impossible for many to 
suppress the rising tear. 

From Cleaves' Hotel, he was escorted to the house of Captain 
Seth Spring in Biddeford, who was a soldier of the revolution, and 
in the battle of Bunker Hill. After partaking of refreshments and 
tarrying until evening, he was escorted to the house of Mrs. Thorn- 
ton, widow of the late Marshal Thornton, who with a feeling that 
did her honor, threw open her house to receive the Hero, and a 
large number of ladies and gentlemen of Saco and Biddeford and 
the neighboring towns. Here were introduced with many others, 
Mrs. Thacher of Thomaston, daughter of General Knox, and Mrs. 
Savage, widow of a revolutionary Captain who was personally 
rewarded for his bravery by LaFayette. 

The General passed the night and breakfasted at Capt. Spring's. 
On Saturday morning, at 7 o'clock, he was escorted by a numerous 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 233 

cavalcade as far as the village of Scarborough, where he was 
received with the same feeling of gratitude by the people, that had 
cheered him on all his journey through the States ; and about 9 
o'clock A.M. (June 24, 1825), General LaFayette entered the town 
of Portland. Although he had been the roun^. of the whole coun- 
try, and received the attentions and gratulations of a whole nation 
for almost a year, so that the subject might be supposed in some 
degree to have lost its novelty, yet we doubt whether he had in any 
place met with a more cordial and warm reception than in this 
town ; and what is more remarkable, notwithstanding the whole 
year of fatigue duty which he had gone through, witnessing almost 
the same scenes from day to day, yet he showed not the least mark 
of apathy, but seemed to greet the old war-worn veterans of the 
Revolution with as much enthusiasm, to exchange salutations with 
the public functionaries with as much animation, and to shake 
hands with the thousands who thronged around him with as much 
feeling and affection as he possibly could have done on his first 
arrival in this country. On his arrival in Portland, he was met by 
the Committee of Arranofements, the Selectmen and citizens of the 
town on Bramhall's hill, where he was addressed by the Hon. 
Stephen Longfellow in behalf of the citizens, to which the General 
replied as usual. A procession was formed to escort him through 
the town, including his son and Mons LaVasseur. The military 
escort consisted of four uniformed companies of light troops. 
They were the Portland Light Infantry, the Rifle Company, Me- 
chanic Blues and Brunswick Light Infantry; the latter with a 
spirit that did them much credit, voluntarily marched from Bruns- 
wick to this place, a distance of twenty-six miles, in complete uni- 
form, to join the escort of the day. About fifty truckmen dressed 
in white frocks appeared in the cavalcade and added much to the 
appearance of the procession. 



234 Maine Historical and Ge7iealogical Recorder. 

The General rode in an open carriage, drawn by four white 
horses, his head uncovered and accompanied by Colonel Dunlap. 
The procession, as it moved through the principal streets of the 
town, passed under many beautiful arches of evergreen and roses 
thrown across the streets in different localities; one across Danforth 
street, at the intersection of High, with the inscription, ''Welcome 
LaFayette',' ''Brandywine i"]"]7'' another across the head of Free 
street, on which a live eagle was perched, and on the arch these 
inscriptions — ''Washington and La Fayette'^' "Welcome Chevalier'^^ 
"Sails peur et sans reproach'' On Free street the school children 
numbering about twelve hundred all dressed in uniform greeted 
him; the girls holding wreaths of flowers which they waved at the 
General and threw into the street as he passed ; and the boys wore 
badges of blue ribbon on their hats inscribed with " Welcome La- 
Fayette^ The General looked on them with affectionate interest 
as he passed with his head uncovered before them. An arch was 
erected at the foot of Free street, inscribed with "Welcome to our 
ParrisT Across Middle at the head of Exchange street, was an 
arch inscribed " Yorktown'' At the head of King street another, 
on which stood 2, full rigged miniature ship, and upon the arch was 
inscribed "/ shall purchase and fit out a vessel for my self r Another 
arch was thrown across Congress street in front of the Universalist 
church and near the State House, where the Governor and Council 
were in waiting. Salutes were fired on Bramhall's Hill, Mount Joy 
and at Fort Preble; and the bells rung during the movement of the 
procession. 

It was estimated that near fifteen thousand people saw LaFay- 
ette during the few hours he remained in the town. A platform 
was erected in front of the State House and covered with an exten-' 
sive awning where the General was addressed by President Allen 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 235 

of Bowdoin College and in presence of the officers and students of 
the college, received the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws. 
After some time spent in greetings, etc., the procession moved to 
the house of Mr. Daniel Cobb on Free street, where lodgings had 
been prepared for the General. Here refreshments were taken, 
and here also he was addressed in behalf of the Grand Lodge of 
Maine, by William Swan, Esquire, Grand Master, and other mem- 
bers of the Fraternity. And as LaFayette could not extend his 
journey beyond Portland, he was addressed here by the citizens of 
Thomaston, Bath, Hallowell, Augusta and Gardiner; to all of which 
the General responded in his happy way. At 4 o'clock the Gen- 
eral partook of a public dinner at Union Hall, which was prepared 
and served in elegant style. The guest spent the evening at the 
house of Governor Parris, which was thrown open to the citizens. 
LaFayette left town Sunday morning about 7 o'clock without any 
parade and returned to Saco on his way to Vermont. He took 
breakfast at Captain Spring's in Biddeford, tarried a short time 
with Colonel Emery, and attended divine service at the church of 
Rev. Mr. Tracy ; immediately after which, he set out for Concord, 
where he arrived the same night. 

Note. — We have gathered the above sketch of LaFayette's visit to Maine, from the local 
papers of that time, which chronicled the incidents as they occurred. We have heard our grand- 
parents recite the story of the General's visit to their town with so much interest that we ventured 
to publish the narrative anew, hoping it may not be entirely without interest to our readers at this 
time, though we regret that our space will not allow a reprint of some, at least of the excellent and 
patriotic speeches, and toasts brought out by this occasion. Editor.

NEW MARBLEHEAD, NOW WINDHAM, MAINE. 
SETTLEMENT OF THE TOWNSHIP. 



rev. g. m. bodge, east boston, mass. 




{Continued from Page 20J.) 

PON the petition and answer given above, the General 
Court took action and appointed a committee of both 
houses to report; These reported, through Mr. John 
Hill, that the original record of the grant was destroyed when the 
[Boston] town-house was burnt, aid asked that the propietors 
should lay before the Court, their original grant, at the next ses- 
sion. This report was accepted and passed both houses, January 
12, 1758. The settlers, however, were impatient of the slow motion 
of both Proprietors and Court, and after waiting till near the 
beginning of another year they seek again to move the Court with 
another petition, presenting their grievances in a somewhat new 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 249 

light ; this, with the answer of the Proprietors and accompanying 
papers, still preserved in the Mass. Archives, gives so many and 
important historical facts, that I give them here complete. We 
may read here, even between the lines, of the many hardships with 
which both parties had to contend. 

The death of Mr. Wight, to whom the usual minister's right had 
been given, was a disaster to both. The Proprietors had fulfilled 
their obligations in settling a minister ; his right descended to his 
heirs. The Proprietors could not grant rights to successive candi- 
dates. They had no inducement for a second minister and they 
felt it to be a hardship that the settlers should call upon them to 
make further sacrifices in settling the second, as they were in no 
wise to blame for the loss of the first. To the General Court they 
present the claim that they have fulfilled the condition of their 
grant, and their records show here and there this conclusion. The 
records show also that several votes were passed appointing com- 
mittees to investigate the condition of the settlement, the needs of 
the settlers, and granting them assistance in sustaining the minis- 
try in the township ; but the committees failed to serve until the 
patience of the settlers was exhausted and their discontent found 
expression in petitions, the result of which we see in the report of 
the committee previously given. John Wight, son of the first min- 
ister, being, by his father's right, a proprietor, and also well ac- 
quainted in the settlement, b^,me quite active as an agent for the 
Proprietors. He was chosen again after the report made April, 
1759, at the Proprietors' meeting, June 22d, 1759, to collect the 
unpaid taxes of delinquent proprietors, and his report is valuable as 
showing the changes in proprietorship which the first twenty years 
of the township had made. It will be noted that many of the 
grantees had sold out entirely to new settlers, or to other grantees,

and that a majority of the original proprietors were dead. The 
following is the report as copied from the Proprietors' records.

PETITION OF THE INHABITANTS OF NEW MARBLEHEAD. 

Province of the Massachusetts Bay. 

To his Excellency Thomas Pownall Esqr., Capt. General-in-chief in and over the 
said Province, the Hon^^^, his Majesty's Council & house of Representatives in 
Gen^ Court assembled, Dec. 28, 1758. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 251 

The Petition of the Inhabitants of a place called New Marblehead in the County 
of York, 
Humbly Sheweth, 

That they labor under great Difficulties for want of having the Gospel preached 
amongst them having never had a proper Meeting-House at all nor a Minister these 
many years, for what the Proprietors formerly in part built and called a Meeting- 
house was nothing more than the name of one never answered the Purpose and is 
long since gone to Ruin ; Neither have said Inhabitants had any Minister with 
them for these five years past, excepting one Winter they themselves hired a gen- 
tleman to preach which they were poorly able to do, being but twenty-eight in num- 
ber and in low circumstances. Their distressed condition they have often presented 
to the Proprietors and begged their assistance, but they altho' sixty in number are 
all non-Residents excepting four : and having given a small part of a right to some 
or other of the Inhabitants for settling, own more than three-quarters of the Town- 
ship yet, and notwithstanding their unimproved lands are daily advanced in value 
by the Improvements made by the Inhabitants, yet they are deaf to all their Cries 
and refuse to be at any Expense that they may have a settled Ministry amongst 
them, by means thereof they have been obliged to live like Heathen. To remedy 
which, your Petitioners about two years ago applied to the Hon^^*', the Gen^ Court, 
for Relief, and the matter was then in part enquired into, but for what Reasons 
your Petitioners cannot tell never came to an issue, so that they have remained in 
the same bad situation ever since. Your Petitioners are not only sufferers in the 
above particulars, but their children are also bred up in ignorance for want of a 
School, having never had one in the place since the first settlement thereof, altho' 
near or quite twenty years since. For not having incouragement of the Proprietor's, 
the number of Inhabitants have increased but slowly and not one-half requisite by 
law to transact Town affairs. Wherefore, it was not possible for them legally to 
raise money among themselves for the support of a school or any other Use that 
might be for the good of the whole. ^These difficulties your Petitioners have long 
suffered and must yet longer unless relieved by this Hon^^® Court. 

Wherefore, they humbly pray your Excellencies and Honours, that a tax may be 
laid on the Non-Resident Proprietor's Lands, in said Township, in Order to raise a 
fund for building a Meeting-House and supporting a Minister amongst them, And 
that said Inhabitants may have power to Raise & collect money amongst them- 
selves for the support of a School, in said Township, or any other use that may be 
judged by the major part of said Inhabitants for the benefit of the whole ; Or that 



252 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

they may otherwise have Redress, as to your Excellency and Honors known wis- 
dom and Goodness shall seem meet, And your Petitioners in duty bound will ever 
pray.

thereof should not be granted.

Falmouth, May 28, 1759, We, the subscribers, being well ac- 
quainted with the House the Proprietors of New Marblehead built, 
there designed for a Meeting-House, at y^ Request of Mr. Abraham 
Anderson, one of the Inhabitants of s^ New Marblehead, do De- 
clare that the said House never was finished, nor was y^ work done 
in a workmanlike manner, so far as was done ; no floor was ever 
laid, nor windows to said House, neither was y^ House ever under- 
pinned, not fit for y^ people to meet in.

This last paper is evidently an affidavit, obtained by the commit- 
tee of the Inhabitants, just before the date of the Court's appointed 
consideration of the case in order to strengthen that part of their 
complaint which we see, and they probably understood, was weak 
(i.e.), if they could prove that point, it was their strongest, but the 
evidence seems to have been against them and, in the main, accord- 
ing to the declarations of the Proprietors. 

The Answer of the Proprietors follows. 

Province of Massachusetts Bay. 

To his Excellency Thomas Pownall, Esqr., Commander-in-chief, and to the Hon- 
orable, His Majesty's Council and House of Representatives, of said Province, in 
General Court Assembled, the sixth day of June, a.d., 1759. 



254 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 

The Subscribers, a Committee of the Proprietors of the common and undivided 
lands in a Place called New Marblehead, in the County of York, 
Humbly shew in their Behalf, 

That in Obedience to the Order of this Honorable Court of the 12*^ & 13*^ of 
January, a.d., 1758, the said Proprietors, at a meeting for that purpose, appointed 
a Committee with orders to repair to the said Place and take an exact account of 
the condition of the settlement in order to its being laid before this Honorable 
Court, which Committee, not attending to that service the said Proprietors at their 
meeting in March last, appointed Messrs. John Wight and Samuel Turner to do it, 
who have accordingly been on the spot ; whose report, together with a true copy of 
the Original Grant of the s*^ Township, with a list of the Original Grantees, we 
now beg leave to lay before you. 

And in Answer to the Petitioners of the Inhabitants of that place, now depend- 
ing before your Excellency and this Hon^^® Court, we beg leave to say. That a.d., 
i737> the Grantees of said Township, at their own expense, erected a Meeting- 
House there, 38 feet long, 28 feet wide and 14 feet stud. That a.d., 1743, they 
settled the Rev. John Wight, in the work of the Ministry there, who was ordained 
and continued there during his life, viz., till 1752, during which time he was sup- 
ported wholly by the Grantees, to which the settlers as such contributed nothing. 
That Mr. Wight made use of the said Meeting-House and preached in it till the 
year 1746, when the Inhabitants pulled it down and afterwards met in the Fort or 
Block-House, built there by the Government. That upon the Death of Mr. Wight, 
the Grantees apprehended that it was high time that the Settlement of sixty families 
enjoined by the Grant, should be compleated and that then it would be most fit 
that the Inhabitants should by themselves choose and contract with a Minister, 
and the Grantees as such should assist them in his support. 

This the Proprietors have been already to do, and had the settlement been com- 
pleated according to the Term of the Grant, or in many years after, the Incon- 
venience now complained of would not have happened; As to a Meeting House, 
the Block House which they have used for that purpose ever since the Meeting- 
House was pulled down, will, we hope, be sufficient to accommodate the Families 
there till the number of Settlers shall be compleated and the Inhabitants incorpo- 
rated ; which we hope by the Order of your Excellency and the Honorable Court 
will soon be effected, and in the meantime, the Proprietors have at their last March 
meeting Ordered the payment of 60 dollars out of their Treasury to assist the 
Inhabitants procuring preaching there ; And there is no reason to doubt but that 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 255 

the said Proprietors will from Time to Time, as there may be occasion, make fur- 
ther grants for that purpose, which we apprehend will be the most Salutary Meth- 
od of Supporting the Preaching the Gospel there until the said Settlement be 
compleated and the Inhabitants be incorporated as aforesaid and then the Pro- 
prietors will readily contribute to assist the Inhabitants in the Re-building a 
Meeting-House and the settling a Minister there ; and if they fail may be compelled. 

And as a number of Defective Grantees are in arrears of the several Taxes that 
have been laid on them and duly notified for bringing the Settlement and the con- 
ditions of the said Township by that means, remaining unpaid, we pray that the 
present assessors. Viz*., Nathan Bowen, John Wight & Samuel Turner, or a 
Quorum of them may be Authorized to sell and Leagally convey as much of the 
Delinquent Rights through the Township as will pay said Arrears. And as the 
Boundary Lines betwixt the Township and the Towns of Falmouth and North 
Yarmouth have not yet been settled, the ascertaining of which is of great impor- 
tance to this Township, we pray that your Excellency & Hon"^^ to order some 
proper methods for affecting the same. 

All which is submitted by your Excellency & Hon^^ Most Ob' Servants.

Mass. Archives, Vol. 117, pp. 421-423. 

The records of the Proprietors show that on May 14th, 1760, 
they voted to appropriate one hundred and twenty pounds to assist 
the inhabitants in settling and sustaining another minister for two 
years. They voted also to petition the Court to incorporate the 
inhabitants into a Town, or District, and to settle the boundary 
between Falmouth and N. Yarmouth and the new township. The 
following letter shows that a compromise between Proprietors and 
the inhabitants, took place in the Winter of 1759-60. 

The letter is dated at Marblehead, June 6, 1760, and is from 
Nathan Bowen, for the Proprietors, to Jacob Fowle, Esq., who was 
in the House of Representatives. 



256 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

We hereby Certifie that the Proprietors of New Marblehead at their meeting 
yesterday Granted ;^i2o to be paid out of the Proprietors Treasury and applied to 
the assisting the Inhabitants of the Township to settle a Minister there and toward 
his support for one year to Commence and be Accounted from the Ordination of 
such Minister ; and Sixty pounds per year more for the two years next coming after 
that time toward Support of s*^ Minister ; Provided the Create & Ceneral Court do 
not lay any Tax's on s^ Proprietors or order any tax's to be laid on them during that 
time ; Which Crant is to the Mutual sattisfaction of the Proprietors & Inhabitants, 
who have agreed that the Petition of the Inhabitants now depending before the 
Create & Ceneral Court do cease & be no furthur prosecuted.

SOME OF THE DESCENDANTS OF JOSIAH 

OAKMAN OF SPURWINK RIVER IN 

SCARBOROUGH, MAINE. 



COMPILED BY F. W. FLITNER, BOSTON, MASS. 




OSIAH,^ son of SamueP Oakman* of Spurwink River, 
Maine, probably settled in Marblehead, Mass., soon after 
the Indian Wars of 1689-90. The Oakmans of Lynn 
and Salem were his descendants. 

I find on the Records of the First Church of Marblehead, Mary 
Oakman, adult, admitted to the Church 1698, which proves that 
some of the family were there as early as that date. Samuel,^ son 
of Josiah^ bought a house and lot in Boston as per Register of

1 714, the deed signed by himself and wife Sarah. He also bought 
house and land in Marblehead, as per Register of Deeds, Essex 
Co., June 4, 1725. Nathan Bowen was appointed administrator of 
Estate of SamueP Oakman of Marblehead, Oct. 30, 1730, as per 
Probate Court Records of Essex Co. 

By York Records, Maine, we find "March 11, 1747-8, Sarah 
Grant, Mary Andrews, Sarah Okman of Marblehead, ^10 to Job 
Burnam of Scarborough^ a Grant of Land granted to Sam^ Oak- 
man in the year 1720 in the town of Scarborough." 3°= 262

ANATOMY, PHYSIOLOGY, SURGERY AND MEDICINE. 

Massachusetts Historical Society, ) 
Boston, October 10, 1887. \ 

S. M. Watson, Esq., Editor of the "Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder." 

Dear Sir : — I send you the following advertisement, taken from the " Columbian 

Centinel " (Boston), June 25, 1808, which may interest some of your medical anti- 

.quaries. It was, probably, the earliest attempt, within the District of Maine, to 

teach the science of medicine on so large a scale. Samuel A. Green. 

Fryburg (District of Maine), June 4, 1808. 
R. RAMSEY, formerly teacher of anatomy and physiology 
in Edinburg, and lately teacher of the same branches in 
Columbia College, New York, for the accommodation of 
such gentlemen as may not find it convenient to attend the minu- 
tiae of his public course of lectures, will commence a private course 
of instructions, on Monday the first of August next, at Fryburg, 
on the contents of the Cranium, Thorax, Abdomen, and Pelvis, so 
important to be comprehended by the medical practitioner, where 
the Dissections, Physiology, and Pathology will be clearly demon- 




Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 285 

strated from the subjects of which the museum is composed. And 
those gentlemen of the Law, Divinity, or the speculative philoso- 
pher, who may be desirous to become acquainted with these most 
useful branches of science, relating to the animal economy, may be 
informed, that this knowledge may be acquired, by strict attention 
to six lectures. This private course, each ticket, 20 dollars. 

In pursuance of his proposals of last year, he will commence his 
public course of demonstrations on Anatomy, and lectures on Phy- 
siology, Surgery, and Medicine, founded on anatomical data, on 
Thursday the first day of September next. The course to consist 
of a lecture of one hour and a half, each lawful day, during the 
months of September and October. It is hoped, in this short space 
of time, the advantages presented the pupil may not only meet the 
convenience of practitioners, but students likewise, who may reach 
their colleges previous to commencement. 

The proposed system of instructions will embrace the doctrines 
of Anatomy, Physiology, &c., in their full extent. 

A Library will also be furnished, composed of the school books 
on Anatomy, Physiology, Surgery, Physic, Midwifery, and Chymis- 
try; accompanied with a Museum, as in the Doctors' school in 
Edinburgh, comprising anatomical preparations of the human sys- 
tem, and paintings, conveying a correct idea of recent appearances 
in dissections, referred to in a book published by Dr. R. for his 
pupils in Europe. 

Particular attention will be paid to initiating gentlemen into a 
knowledge of the elegant and dexterous use of the Scalpel, forming 
anatomical preparations, &c. This course, each ticket, 20 dollars. 
Both courses, 30 dollars. 

The local circumstances connected with the retired situation of 
Fryburg, as friendly to habits of virtue and study, as well as health, 
are too evident to require animadversion.

Pearce W. Penhallow of Boston, we find that the sixth child of 
Chief Justice Samuel Penhallow and his wife, Mary Cutts, was 
Elizabeth. Her mother was the youngest daughter of John Cutts, 
the first president of the King's Council in New Hampshire. 

Elizabeth Penhallow married, in 1730, John Dummer of New- 
bury. Their children are not given in the Memoir, but reference 
is made in a foot note to the fact that Mrs. Elizabeth (Penhallow) 
Dummer married Rev. Christopher Tappan, after the death of her 
first husband, and was living with a son (by her first marriage), 
in 1764. To the ordinary observer there would seem to be little 
use in developing the clue any further than given. The final cause 
which led to its being thoroughly investigated was the finding some 
data in an old family Bible (which has been in the family of the 
writer since the days of Chief Justice Sewall). The Bible had 
evidently been given by him to his daughter, Elizabeth Penhallow. 
On the last page, written in a clear and elegant old-fashioned chir- 
ography, we find the autographs of Elizabeth Penhallow, Katharine 
Dummer and Elizabeth Bartlett. On another page is inscribed: 
"Samuel Penhallow, born at St. Mabyn's, July 2, 1665." Under- 
neath that the birth of Elizabeth Penhallow, followed by that of 
Phcebe Penhallow. The similarity of names and coincidences led 
the writer to investigate the records at Newbury, Mass., in hopes of

eliciting further information. The following complete chain was 
found. Elizabeth Penhallow married John Dummer of Newbury 
in 1730. Her husband was the son of Richard and Elizabeth 
Appleton Dummer, and grandson of Richard and Frances (Burr) 
Dummer, who emigrated to Newbury from Bishopstoke in 1632. 
Their residence was in Newbury during the five years of their mar- 
ried life. Their children were : — 

1. Katharine, b. May 8, 1731. 

2. John, Jr., b. Aug. 8, 1733. 

Katharine married Hon. Enoch Bartlett of Haverhill, Mass., in 
August, 1755. Her brother, John Dummer Jr., married on the 
20th of February, 1755, Miss Hannah Titcomb of Newbury, Mass. 

Mr. and Mrs. Enoch Bartlett resided in Haverhill. Kathar- 
ine Dummer was Hon. Enoch Bartlett's second wdfe. Their chil- 
dren were : — 

1. Elizabeth, b. July 6, 1756. 

2. Katharine, b. July 4, 1761 ; died unmarried. 

Elizabeth Bartlett, daughter of Hon. Enoch Bartlett, by his 
second wife, Katharine Dummer (and great-granddaughter of Pres- 
ident John Cutts;) married Nathaniel Sparhawk Jr., of Kittery, 
Maine. He was a son of Hon. Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Pepper- 
ell) Sparhawk and thus grandson of Sir William Pepperell of Kit- 
tery, Maine. They were married April 26, 1780. 

John Dummer Jr. married Feb. 20, 1755, Hannah Titcomb 
of Newbury. Their daughter was : — 

I. Elizabeth, b. Nov, 4, 1756. 

Elizabeth Bartlett, daughter of Hon. Enoch and Katharine 



296 Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder, 

Dummer Bartlett, married Nath. Sparhawk Jr., April 26, 1780. 
Their only child was : — 

I. Mary Pepperell, b. June 27, 1781, in Kittery, Maine. 

From various sources we learn that she was a young lady of rare 
attainments and much beloved. In 1808, she married Hon. Wil- 
liam Jarvis in Lisbon, Portugal, where he was then United States 
Consul and Charge d'Affaires. Her romantic courtship and the 
events attendant thereon are related in " The Life and Times of 
Hon. William Jarvis," by their eldest daughter, Mary Pepperell 
Sparhawk Jarvis. 

Mary Pepperell Sparhawk, who was the only child of Hon. 
Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Bartlett) Sparhawk (great-granddaughter 
of Sir William Pepperell of Kittery, Maine, and great-great-grand- 
daughter of Pres. John Cutts of Portsmouth, New Hampshire), 
married Hon. William Jarvis, March, 1808. Their children were: — 

1. Mary Pepperell Sparhawk, b. May, 1809. 

2. Elizabeth Bartlett, b. Feb., 181 1. 

Mary P. S. Jarvis, daughter of Hon. Wm. Jarvis and his wife, 
Mary Pepperell Sparhawk (and third great-granddaughter of Presi- 
dent John Cutts of Portsmouth, N. H.), married in Sept., 1829, 
Hon. Hampden Cutts, third great-grandson of Robert Cutts of 
Kittery, Maine, who was brother to President John Cutts. They 
were in other words fifth cousins, without knowing it. Elizabeth 
Bartlett Jarvis, the second daughter of Hon. Wm. and Mary P. S. 
Jarvis, married David Everett Wheeler, Esq., of New York City, a 
lawyer of high standing, Feb., 1833. 

Mrs. Mary Pepperell (Sparhawk) Jarvis died in Haverhill, Mass., 
April 7, 181 1, at the age of thirty years. 



Maine Historical and Genealogical Recorder. 297 

After her death Consul Jarvis married as his second wife, Miss 
Anne Bailey Bartlett of Haverhill, his first wife's own cousin. His 
residence from that time forth was in Weathersfield, Vermont, 
where he died in Oct., 1859, at the advanced age of 89 years. 

The descendants of the Consul's eldest daughter, Mrs. Mary P. 
S. J. Cutts, are lineal descendants of Robert and Mary (Hoel) Cutt 
of Kittery, Maine ; of Sir Wm. Pepperell of the same town ; of 
the Boynton's of Saco ; of the Curtis's and Foxwell's of the same 
place, also of Pres. John Cutt of Portsmouth, N. H. The descend- 
ants of the Consul's second daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth B. J. Wheeler, 
are also descendants of President John Cutts and Sir Wm. Pepper- 
ell. The careful tracing of little links sometimes develops strange 
and interesting coincidences.

After the reading of the records of the last 
meeting, Treasurer Bibber submitted his yearly 
report, which showed a good condition of the 
finances of the association. The expenses for

were $90 in the treasury. J. G. Richardson, of 
the Executive Committee, presented the name 
of J. Larrabee Purington for membership, and 
he was declared elected. On motion of J. M.

Old Colony Historical Society. — The 
quarterly meeting of the Old Colony Historical 



Society, held in Historical Hall, Taunton, Oct. 
loth, was attended by a large number of mem- 
bers. The President, Rev. S. Hopkins Emery, 
made a cheering report of the affairs of the 
society. He said that the directors had fixed 
the day of this meeting with special reference 
to the fact that it was the eightieth anniversary 
of the birth of Capt. John William Dean Hall, 
their indefatigable librarian, who bears with 
signal honor the names ©f three of the original 
and principal settlers of Taunton, closing with a 
presentation of a portrait of Capt. Hall to the 
society. Resolutions were adopted, speeches 
made, a poem and congratulatory letters read, 
and finally Dr. E. H. Jones, the society's 
treasurer, appeared upon the scene with a neat 
speech, saying that the members of the society 
have not been ignorant spectators, or thankless 
recipients of the work of their Librarian. 
They are witnesses of its results, and acknowl- 
edge that its value has not been and could not 
be computed, but that some of his friends had 
concluded that he deserved to be caned for it. 
In their behalf he presented Capt. Hall with a 
beautiful gold-headed cane, observing that it 
seemed hardly needed for support, " for his long 
and springy step appeared hardly to have lost 
the elasticity of half a century ago," yet the 
cane was a light one, suggestive of best wishes 
of friends, rather than any needed aid. 

The field occupied by this society is very 
important and it is gratifying to know that it is 
being well cultivated. m. f. k.

THE INDEX LIBRARY. 

A monthly series of Indexes and Calendars to British Records. 

Edited by W. P. W. Phillimore, M.A., B.C.L. 

Arrangements have been made to issue a fasciculus of Indexes to the principal English 
Records, with separate pagination. The undertaking enables the student, at a small ex- 
pense, to place a key to the principal Engliah Records on his own book-shelves, thus allow- 
ing him to at once ascertain what information the Records are likely to afford him. As the 
official " reference " to the Records is also added, he can bespeak an "office copy," or 
obtain through a record-agent, an abstract or precis of a document without leaving his own 
library. The series appeals to the interests of the Historian, the Genealogist, the Topog- 
rapher, and the General Student, and must prove of incalculable value to American and 
Colonial Genealogists. The First Series consists of the following Indexes, with official 
references : — 

1. Chancery Proceedings, Bills and Answers, 1625-1649. 2. Royalist Composition 
Papers, Series I and II. 3. "Signet" Indexes, forming a Key to the Patent Rolls, 1584- 
1624. 4. Northamptonshire and Rutland Wills, 1510-1652. 

The work is printed in a handy Octavo form, with old-face type cast specially for this 
work, in double columns, and published on the first of each month. Each part contains not 
less than 48 Pages. The January part is now ready. Subscription £l Is. per annum, post 
free. Single numbers are sold at 2s. each. A " Library Edition " on large paper, is also 
issued quarterly: annual subscriptiou £l lis. 6d. post free. London: Chas. J. Clark, 4 
Lincoln's Inn Fields, W.C.
